Kevin Hart, Tiffany Haddish, Joe Rogan, Tommy Chong and D.L. Hughley take Nos. 1-5 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Comedians chart for a second week in a row as of the latest tally, dated March 21.

The Top Comedians chart is a ranking of the most popular comedians on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and Google Plus, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart's methodology blends social engagement on the platforms along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. The latest tracking week ended March 13.

After the top five led by Hart, the rest of the top 10 is a little more volatile, with Colleen Ballinger (No. 6) and Mike Epps (No. 9) re-entering, while Dennis Miller (No. 10) debuts.

Ballinger, Epps and Miller replace Ricky Gervais, Chelsea Peretti and Bill Maher on the chart.
