It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and a different family-friendly channel is in the top spot.
Ryan ToysReview only dipped 6% in its weekly view count, but that was enough to push the YouTube destination of four-year-old Ryan down to the #5 spot. The little tyke’s repository of playtime footage racked up almost 127.4 million views on the week. Now in first place is another family-friendly YouTube channel aimed at the little kid demographic. Toy Freaks shot up 130% in its weekly view count to top out at just about 166.2 million views during the week.
WWE is next up in second place. World Wrestling Entertainment’s home on YouTube jumped up 22% in views to slam down just about 136.3 million of them in the week. netd müzik is up next in the #3 spot. The Turkish music conglomerate’s outpost on the world’s largest video sharing site amassed over 131.2 million views during the seven-day timeframe. And in fourth place this week is T-Series. The self-proclaimed largest music label and movie studio in India skipped up 2% in views to achieve nearly 127.9 million views throughout the week.
The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to The Late Late Show with James Corden.
British comedian and actor James Corden’s late night talk show’s destination on YouTube always does incredibly well after a new upload of one of his famous Carpool Karaoek videos, but this past week was even better than most thanks to a guest rider with national status and world appeal. Michelle Obama rode shotgun with Corden around the White House while Missy Elliott made a surprise guest appearance in the back seat of the car. The trio rocked out to some of FLOTUS’ favorites, which helped The Late Late Show‘s YouTube channel to a 259% week-over-week increase in views, almost 74.6 million views on the week, and the #14 spot on the worldwide chart.
All in all, the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels accounted for 3,589,088,252 views last week. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
