Magazine title plus a possessive = italics?

In the phrase “...ranked in the top five in PC Magazine’s top-20 list...” I know that “PC Magazine” should be italicized. But should the italic formatting carry over to the apostrophe-s or not?

Well, you want to italicize PC MAgazine, because this is a title right? Does the 's belong to the title? No. IMO, you shouldn't therefore italicize it.

You don't need to italicize the possessive; that's not part of the name. It would look wrong if you italicized the whole thing.
That isn't really anything to do with correct English though, it's just a matter of typing protocol.
