I doubt Chinese Media know the actual number either.

Here is my opinion of the main skylines:

HONG KONG - Still reign supreme, and will probably do that for many years to come.

CHONGQING - Highest density after Hong Kong, and also second best natural scenery. (also after Hong Kong)

GUANGZHOU - Probably the most balanced skyline. (and some of the most aesthetic towers)

SHENZHEN - Insane development, best planned city in China, even if that means less density with all the green areas.

SHANGHAI - Iconic towers, massive skyline, but a bit messy. (also many kitsch skyscrapers)

BEIJING - Decent, but rather disappointing considering the city size, economical and political position in the world.
