Due to our belief in the lack of transparency and well-defined measures in methods used by U.S News to rank CS departments in theoretical computer science (and in general), my PhD. student Saeed Seddighin and I have worked for several months to provide a ranking based on a real and measurable method of the number of papers in TCS for the top 50 US Universities. To make this possible, we gathered the information about universities from various resources. You may see the ranking and our exact methodology here.
Indeed we have some initial rankings based on similar measures for computer science in general as well which we plan to release soon (we are still in the process of double-checking or even triple-checking our data and our analysis due to several factors). CS theory ranking is our initial ranking release to get feedback at this point.
Please feel free to give us feedback (firstname.lastname@example.org).
