It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and gamers, toys, and pop stars are crowding the Top 10.

Chart Toppers

SkyDoesMinecraft is still up in our #1 spot despite a 15% week-over-week decrease in views. The top American online video gamer scored 27.3 million views in the last seven days. He's followed by Katy Perry. The pop star jumped up from the #22 spot in the U.S. to #2, due to the release of the lyric video to her latest single Roar. Rounding out the Top 3 is every toddler's favorite YouTube channel, DisnecyCollectorBR. The aggregation of video toy reviews for your local neighborhood prepubescents racked up 23.5 million views on the week.

The release of Lady Gaga's official lyric video and official music video for her latest single Applause gave her a 431% increase in views on the week, good enough for the #4 position. She's followed by Zefr's MovieclipsTrailers channel, which despite a 20% week-over-week decrease still attracted 20.8 million views.

Top Gainers

The Top Gainers in the U.S. this week - outside of Katy Perry and Lady Gaga, who we discussed in our Worldwide Chart - are a retail store for kicks and a video game publisher.

James Harden and Stephen Curry's 30-second commercial collaboration in the studio helped give Footlocker a 186% increase in views on the week. That bumped its channel up to the #45 spot with 7.8 million views.

But two NBA stars are no match for gameplay footage from Grand Theft Auto Online. The release from Rockstar Games scored its channel a 516% week-over-week increase in views. That was good enough for the #42 position and 8.4 million views on the week

Channel Distribution

All in all, the top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 636,785,074 views. Here's the distribution of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 16 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Katy Perry topping out at #2.
  • Machinima, WMG: 3 channels each in the Top 50, with SkyDoesMinecraft the top-ranked of Machinima at#1 and WMG's Ryan Lewis Productions (aka Macklemore) at #21.
  • Alloy, IGN, Maker Studios, Zefr: 2 channels each in the Top 50 with Alloy Digital's Smosh at #6,  IGN's official channel at #11, Maker Studios' TobyGames at #19, and Zefr's Movieclips Trailers at #5.
