It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and an Indian channel remains on top.
T-Series is in first place on the worldwide chart for the sixth week in a row. India’s self-described largest music label and movie studio stayed relatively constant in its week-over-week view count to top out just north of 155.6 million views. Up a spot to second place is Ryan ToysReview. Four-year-old Ryan’s eponymous YouTube channel hopped up 2% to end the week with just about 120.6 million views.
In third place is netd müzik. The YouTube destination for the Turkish music conglomerate dropped another 8% in views to bottom out at more than 116.6 million of them on the week. Up in the #4 spot is Toy Freaks. The dramatized version of a family vlogging channel stayed stable at nearly 97.4 million views.
And rounding out the Top 5 is FamilyFunPack. America’s favorite familial septet skipped up 4% in its weekly view count to end the week with just about 92.2 million views.
One of our Top Gainers this week is WatchMojo.
The YouTube channel that’s home for every top 10 list you could possibly imagine (peppered with the additional video about facts, figures, and events current and historical) always does incredibly well in terms of views thanks to a multiple-times-a-day supply of enticing uploads. This week was better than the one before, however, thanks to a few standout hits. “Top 10 Failed McDonald’s Products“, for instance, scored a view count in the 700,000+ range, helping the WatchMojo channel to a 54% week-over-week increase in views, more than 48.3 million views on the week, and the #40 spot on the worldwide chart.
The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide this week amassed a total of 3,352,616,543 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
VEVO: 9 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Justin Bieber the highest-ranked channel of the network at #8.
