Scroll down for this week’s Tubefilter Chart.

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

Chart Toppers

This is Tubefilter’s first U.S. YouTube chart in a couple of weeks. That’s because YouTube stats have been out of whack over the better part of the past month.

First, nearly every single channel in the Top 50 saw it’s week-over-week view count increase somewhere between 100% to 300%  due to some kind of bug with YouTube’s lifetime view count display. That increase messed up the metrics, as did the resulting corrections that removed the erroneous views from nearly every top channel on YouTube. Next, there was a subscriber count glitch that over-counted channel unsubscriptions. Though the glitch was just superficial (and not actually unsubscribing random viewers), it still screwed up the daily and weekly subscriber counts of channels on the world’s largest video sharing site.

Things appear to be back to normal, now, which is why we’re getting back to our regularly-scheduled programming with Tubefilter YouTube charts. So, without further context…

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place position on the U.S. chart for the twenty-fourth week in a row. Young Ryan’s online video destination full of playtime and unboxing vids took home more than 180.7 million views on the week. In a distant second place is WWE. The YouTube home of all things World Wrestling Entertainment closed out the week with just about 135.6 million views.

Next up in the #3 spot is Shakira. The musical multi-hyphenate’s channel jumped up 38% in its weekly view count to top out at over 114.1 million views in the week. ToyScouter is next up in fourth place. The YouTube home that’s representative of one of the video sharing site’s most bizarre trends was up 30% in its weekly views to score more than 102.7 million views throughout the week.

And rounding out the Top 5 is FamilyFunPack. America’s favorite familial septet ended the week just shy of 98.7 million views.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.

The YouTube home of CBS’ flagship late night talk show is having a ratings surge as its frontman, Stephen Colbert, gets more political with the current President of the United States’ administration. Colbert’s eponymous talk show beat NBC’s Tonight Show in the ratings game last week for the first time since the former’s premiere back in 2015. The Late Show‘s YouTube viewership hasn’t been directly proportional to its TV ratings, as Fallon is still amassing more weekly views, but Colbert’s uploads are seeing a similar, if smaller, surge in viewership.

Uploads like this one featuring a segment of Colbert’s interview with John Oliver where the two talk about President Donald Trump’s deportation plans racked up a view count in the multimillions, helping the channel to a 469% week-over-week increase in views, almost 39.7 million views on the week, and the #50 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 3,310,755,024 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 Shakira the top-ranked channel of the network at #3.
  • Studio71: 3 channels in the Top 50, with FamilyFunPack at #5.
  • BroadbandTV, BuzzFeed, Maker Studios, Movieclips, NBCU: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BBTV’s WorldStarHipHop at #23, BuzzFeed’s BuzzFeed Video at #33, Maker’s FGTeeV at #27, Movieclips’ Movieclips at #13, and NBCU’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at #19.
