[Editor's Note: Tubefilter Charts is a new weekly rankings column from Tubefilter with data provided by OpenSlate. It's exactly what it sounds like; a top number ranking of YouTube channels based on statistics collected within a given timeframe. We're starting things off simply with a Tubefilter Top 50 of the Most Viewed YouTube Channels This Week, but look for a lot more fun charts to come in the near future. Check out all of our Tubefilter Charts - with new installments every Friday - here.]

For the first time ever on our Tubefilter Charts, the channel in the #1 spot on the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels is the same one that's on our Worldwide list. Zefr's movieclipsTRAILERS witnessed a staggering 337% views increase during the last seven days, bumping SkyDoesMinecraft into the #2 spot with 32.5 million views. Rounding out the U.S. Top 3 is Rihanna, who's 22.1 million views is still more than 10 million behind the online video gaming phenom ahead of her.

One of biggest jumps up on the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels chart is the official YouTube channel for Despicable Me. The computer-animated 3D flick from Universal Pictures went from outside the Top 50 to #45 with 8.4 million views in the last week. The fact Despicable Me 2 premiered in theaters on July 3 is no coincidence.

One of the biggest falls down on the chart this week is Samsung Mobile's USA channel. The South Korean mobile phone manufacturer's stateside channel was #2 last week with 24.9 million views, but now isn't in the Top 50. The waning of the hype and media buys for the company's collaboration with Jay-Z and his pre-release of Magna Carta Holy Grail are most likely to blame.

All in all, the top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 701,443,698 views. Here's the distribution of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 20 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Rihanna topping out at #3.
  • Machinima: 4 channels in the Top 50, with SkyDoesMinecraft the top-ranked of the network at #2.
  • WMG: 3 channels in the Top 50, with RyanLewisProductions in the #8 spot this week.
  • Alloy, IGN, Zefr: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with Alloy's Smosh at #7, IGN's main channel at #14, and Zefr's movieclipsTrailers on top.
