The charts rank the most popular personalities and TV shows based on data from Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube.

Promotion for the upcoming third season of Netflix’s Chilling Adventures of Sabrina leads the show to its first week at No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter’s Top Scripted chart dated Jan. 22.

THR’s Social Climbers charts are rankings of the most popular entities on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube, with global data provided by social media analytics company MVPindex. The chart's methodology blends engagement to entities’ social media accounts along with weekly additions of followers/subscribers. The latest tracking week ended Jan. 14.

With a 208 percent boost in overall social engagement, including gains in all chart metrics, Chilling Adventures of Sabrina earns its first week at No. 1 on Top Scripted with a jump from No. 4, doing so in just its third total week on the chart. The show’s social accounts have been posting teasers for its latest season, which premieres Jan. 24.

The Top Unscripted chart, meanwhile, sees a return to No. 1 for America’s Got Talent, which leaps from No. 3 for its 10th week atop the ranking. The second season of the show’s Champions spinoff, which sees former contestants across iterations of the franchise in countries across the world, premiered Jan. 6. The tally also features a debut in Mira Quien Baila, Univision’s Spanish-language version of Dancing With the Stars, which premiered its eighth season on Jan. 12, scoring a 731 percent jump in overall engagement in the process. The latest season includes celebs Fanny Lu, Sofia Castro, Kiara Liz and more.

On the personality-based charts, Dwayne Johnson returns to No. 1 on Top Actors following a week at No. 2 that saw Ricky Gervais top the list in the wake of the Golden Globe Awards; Gervais drops to No. 2. Further down the list, Adam Sandler scores his third-ever week in Top Actors’ top 10, coinciding with a perceived snub by the Academy Awards of his performance in Uncut Gems.

“Bad news: Sandman gets no love from the Academy,” he tweeted Jan. 13 in a post that’s been liked 411,000 times.
