It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and a Russian prankster replaced Miley Cyrus at the top.

Chart Toppers

YouTube viewers love a good prank. A case in point is our latest #1 channel on the U.S. Top 50, VitalyzdTV. The online repository of all the pranks of Vitaly Zdorovetskiy captured on video amassed an amazing 45 million views this week. That's in large part due to the recent upload of the self-esteem booster of every rejected man, the Gold Digger Prank!.

International pop star Miley Cyrus slipped into the #2 spot with nearly 41.2 million. She's followed by another international female pop star who is in the midst of popularizing a new album, Katy Perry. She closed the week at nearly 33.7 million views.

Again at the #4 spot this week is the favorite YouTube channel of everyone under the age of 24 months, Disney Collector BR with 32.9 million views. And rounding out the Top 5 is The Ellen Show. The show's clip of its producers traveling through a haunted house helped push the channel up to 28.9 million views.

Top Gainers

As we mentioned in the worldwide version of our Top 50 chartEminemMusic and the rapper's new title of Rap God is one of our Top Gainers this week. The channel's views increase of 1,324% brought it all the way up to #14 in the U.S. with 16.7 million views.  The single almost single-handedly accounted for the channel's 16.7 million viewsup 1,324% since last week. Sleight of hand magician with a love for the ladies, Stuart Edge didn't land too far behind at #23 with almost 13.3 million views on the week.

But our Top Gainer in the U.S. honor goes to patozmusic (aka PMW Live Channel). The producer infamous for brining the Rebecca Black song Friday to the world released a new controversial, poppy jam for middle schoolers dubbed Chinese Food. Thanks to the new song, the channel witnessed a 1,705% week-over-week increase in views, bringing its seven-day total to 11.8 million and the #31 spot on the chart.

Channel Distribution

All in all, the top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 807,288,398 views . Here's the distribution of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 16 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Miley Cyrus topping out at #2.
