It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and a four-year-old is still on top.

Chart Toppers

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place spot on the U.S. chart for the seventh week in a row. The four-year-old’s collection of toy unboxing videos and playtime footage stayed constant in its view count and remained in the #1 spot in commanding fashion with more than 120.1 million views. In a distant second place is FamilyFunPack. The seven-member family vlog channel closed the week up 4% at just about 95.5 million views.

Next up in third place is Toy Freaks. The dramatized version of a typical family vlog channel dropped 8% in views to bottom out at over 90 million during the week. Up next in the #4 spot is WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment’s YouTube outpost took home over 84.3 million views in the week.

And rounding out the Top 5 for the second week in a row is Chainsmokers. The pop DJ duo’s hit “Closer” is still attracting views, helping the channel to over 83.4 million of them on the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Brave Wilderness.

The channel that’s home to the often-times daring online video exploits of “adventurer and animal expert” Coyote Peterson always does relatively well online, but this week it received an inordinate number of views thanks to one angry insect.

Peterson was out in the Sonoran Desert in Tucson, Arizona to capture himself a Velvet Ant (also known as a “Cow Killer” because it’s sting is reported to be so excruciating that it could put a cow permanently out to pasture). Peterson then proceeded to get stung by said Velvet Ant and tens of millions of individuals tuned in to catch the action and its immediate effects. The “Stung by a Cow Killer!” video helped the Brave Wilderness channel to a 476% week-over-week increase in views, almost 63.5 million views on the week, and the #14 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 2,567,354,869 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 16 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Chainsmokers the top-ranked channel of the network at #5.
  • Maker Studios, Studio71: 3 channels each in the Top 50, with Maker’s Markiplier at #32 and Studio71’s FamilyFunPack at #2.
  • BuzzFeed, Movieclips, WMG: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BuzzFeed’s BuzzFeedVideo at #10, Movieclips’ Movieclips Trailers at #30, and WMG’s Fueled By Ramen at #11.
