It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and its another reminder that watching video gamers, adolescents, geriatrics, and viral videos has more staying power than pop stars.

Chart Toppers

SkyDoesMinecraft is still up in our #1 spot with a 14% week-over-week increase in views. The top American online video gamer scored 32.2 million views in the last seven days. He's followed - per usual - by Zefr's Movieclips Trailers channel, which is in possession of videos that were seen 25.9 million times, which is good for an 11% increase since last week.

In the #3 spot on the U.S. Chart we're welcoming DisneyCollectorBR and her interactive, toddler-oriented reviews of Disney, Pixar, and other family-friendly toys. If you're wondering what the the audience size for that kind of programming is like, the answer is "Huge." The channel's racked up 24 million views in the past seven days.

Rounding out the Top 5 are The Fine Bros. in the #4 spot with a 13% week-over-week increase that brought them up to 20.4 million views. The producing pair is followed by Rooster Teeth, whose recently released RWBY series helped account for a 9% increase and 20.3 million views on the week.

Top Gainers

As we mentioned in our Worldwide chart, The official trailer for Thor: The Dark World gave Marvel's YouTube channel a massive 653% increase in views on the week.

The only other channel to see a three-digit increase in view count is nigahiga. The YouTube repository for Ryan Higa's comedy videos saw a huge 105% increase in views thanks to the Nartuo: The Movie (Official Fake Trailer) made special for YouTube's Geek Week.

And with a solid 52% week-over-week increase in views, we're welcoming Freddie Wong to the Tubefilter Top 50 Charts. The release of the highly anticipated sophomore season of Video Game High School helped his FreddieW YouTube channel score 8.9 million views over the week, good enough for the #38 spot just ahead of Beyonce on the charts.

Channel Distribution

All in all, the top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 641,903,643 views. Here's the distribution of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 15 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Rihanna topping out at #7.
  • Machinima, WMG, Zefr: 3 channels each in the Top 50, with SkyDoesMinecraft the top-ranked of Machinima at#1, WMG's Ryan Lewis Productions (aka Macklemore) at #14, and Zefr's Movieclips Trailers at #2.
  • Alloy, IGN: 2 channels each in the Top 50 with Alloy Digital's Smosh at #6 and IGN's official channel at #20.
