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

Dwayne Johnson holds No. 1 on The Hollywood Reporter's Top Actors chart for the second week in a row, while Hilary Duff makes a big splash, re-entering at No. 2 on the Sept. 4-dated ranking.

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 Aug. 27.

Johnson holds his Top Actors title thanks to 12.5 million Instagram favorites, alongside 316,000 Facebook post likes and 94,000 Twitter favorites, according to MVPindex.

Duff powers to No. 2 after the announcement that she'll be returning to her breakout role of Lizzie McGuire in the character's Disney+ revival. She earned a 576 percent boost in Instagram favorites via news of the reboot, which will follow McGuire as a 30-year-old in New York.

Jennifer Lopez, Lili Reinhart and Jeremy Renner round out the tally's top five.

Top Comedians brings Joe Rogan's first No. 1 rank in nearly a year, as the comedian and podcaster rises from No. 2. For the first time since October and just the second time since the chart began in 2017, Rogan takes the top spot on the strength of a 27 percent jump in Facebook post likes (144,000 in all). Rogan performed three sold-out shows in Denver during the tracking week.

Meanwhile, Ellen DeGeneres holds No. 1 on Top TV Personalities over Queer Eye's Jonathan Van Ness at No. 2.

The TV show-based charts see another No. 1 for Stranger Things on Top Scripted, but Peaky Blinders presents a challenge by surging 3-2 with a 109 percent gain in overall engagement thanks to its fifth season premiere on Aug. 25.

The Daily Show With Trevor Noah rules Top News/Talk/Variety over Entertainment Tonight, and Top Unscripted (led by Wild 'N Out) hosts a trio of debuts from Dancing With the Stars, American Ninja Warrior and So You Think You Can Dance, at Nos. 3, 9 and 10, respectively.
