It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and Indian entertainment is still tops online.
T-Series is in first place on the worldwide chart for the seventeenth week in a row. India’s self-described largest music label and movie studio closed out the week with a massive almost 215.3 million views. Not too far behind is Ryan ToysReviews. Four-year-old Ryan’s online video library of composed of footage from his playtime and unboxing sessions took home over 192 million views in the week.
Next up in the #3 spot is TV3 Official. The YouTube destination for one of Thailand’s national broadcast networks racked up more than 187.6 million views throughout the week. Up next is netd müzik. The Turkish music conglomerate’s YouTube outpost’s videos were viewed just about 130.1 million times over the seven-day timeframe.
And rounding out the Top 5 is Toys AndMe. The British toy unboxing and general family vlog and hijinks channel closed out the week with over 128.7 million views.
One of our Top Gainers this week goes to BuzzFeed
The YouTube home of the internet destination and social media brand known for GIFs, listicles, and hard news stories always does well on the world’s largest video sharing site. This week, however, was better than the one before thanks to BuzzFeed’s regularly scheduled prolific online video output and the continued upward trajectory of it’s latest breakout series Worth It.
The series features Steven Lim kinda faux begrudgingly dragging his BuzzFeed co-worker Andrew Ilnyckyj around various eateries mostly in the Los Angeles metro area with sound and camera guy Adam Bianchi in tow. In each episode, Steven and Adam venture to three different food establishments to taste a meal that features the same dish. The catch is each restaurant visited is more expensive than the one before, but all three restaurants are presumed to have awesome tasting food. Chefs are interviewed, food is tasted and critiqued (and sometimes even given to Adam), and the pair then deliberates on which meal was the best for the price aka which meal was most worth it.
The latest installment features Seattle salmon and quickly racked up a view count in the multimillions, helping the BuzzFeed channel to a 100% week-over-week increase in views, more than 53.9 million views on the week, and the #48 spot on the worldwide chart.
The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide this week amassed a total of 4,297,756,094 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
