It's another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and the most famous female pop stars in the world can't seem to top PewDiePie..

Chart Toppers

Felix Arvid Ulf Kjellberg's YouTube channel and its 18+ million subscribers is still at the top spot on the charts this week and by a very wide margin.

PewDiePie's view count saw a healthy week-over-week increase of 14% to top out at 53.7 million views. That's more than 15 million views than the channel's next closest competitor, Katy Perry. The international pop star's YouTube home was up 5% in views and came in second place to the tune of 36.2 million views in the last seven days. In a close third is Ellen DeGeneres. The online video channel for the comedian's eponymous talk show racked up more than 35.9 million views on the week.

The Turkish Phonographic Industry Society's perennial chart-topper, MÜ-YAP dropped down to fourth place. Turks and fans of Turkish music weren't as enthusiastic about watching Turkish music videos this week, as the channel only drew 35.5 million views after a 21% week-over-week decrease in views. And rounding out the Top 5 is an animated children's program from Russia, Маша и Медведь aka Masha and the Bear. The unlikely pair's cartoon adventures drew nearly 34.9 million views.

Top Gainers

SamsungMobile is one of our Top Gainers this week. The South Korea-based, multi-national electronics conglomerate witnessed a 172% week-over-week increase in views, pushing its mobile channel up to the #16 spot on the Top 50 with more than 21.5 million views. That increase is thanks to a significant holiday season online video advertising spend and at least one awesomely terrible commercial spot.

The company's Are You Geared Up? ad features some sweet wearable technology, unbearable acting chops, and a hackneyed premise that's made it somewhat infamous online in less than a week's time. The advertisement is so bad, in fact, Samsung had to disable comments on the video, (which, if you look at other videos on the channel, is not a common company practice).

Take a look below to form your opinion and realize that despite how poor the advertisement may be, it's gotten people talking about the brand (and watching its videos).

Distribution

All in all, the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels accounted for 1,060,450,060 views last week. Here's the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 10 channels in the Top 50, with Katy Perry at #2.
  • Maker Studios: 5 channels in the Top 50, with PewDiePie at #1.
  • DEFY Media, Disney, Machinima, XMediaDigital, Zefr: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with Defy's ClevverTV at #10 Disney's DisneyAnimation at #36, Machinima's SkyDoesMinecraft at #27, XMediaDigital's mashamedvedtv at #5, and Zefr's MovieclipsTrailers at #12.

And here's the distribution of the this week's Top 50 YouTube channels by country of origin:

  • United States: 30 channels in the Top 50.
  • Great Britain: 4 channels in the Top 50.
  • Canada: 3 channels in the Top 50.
  • Russia, South Korea, Sweden: 2 channels in the Top 50.
  • Argentina, Netherlands, Norway, Spain, Thailand, Turkey: 1 channel each in the Top 50.
