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

Robert Downey Jr. and Ian Somerhalder vault to the top five of The Hollywood Reporter's Top Actors chart, the latter doing so for the first time, while Dwayne Johnson reigns over the Dec. 18-dated list.

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 Dec. 10.

Downey is back at No. 2 for the first time since May amid promotion for his upcoming starring role in the reboot of the Dr. Dolittle franchise; the new film, Dolittle, is scheduled for a Jan. 17 release. The actor's overall social engagement was up 1,997 percent, led by 349,000 Twitter mentions, up from 35,000 in the previous tracking frame.

Somerhalder, meanwhile, reaches a new peak on Top Actors, previously achieved via his No. 11 rank in January 2018. He celebrated the release of the Netflix sci-fi/horror series V Wars, in which he stars, on Dec. 5, posting multiple times to promote the show's release.

Meanwhile, Top Scripted sees Riverdale at No. 1 for a 13th week in all, as two shows, Arrow and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, debut at Nos. 5 and 6, respectively.
