It’s another installment of the weeklyTubefilter Chartof theTop 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channelsand the youngest YouTube star ever is still in the top spot.
Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place position on the U.S. chart for an incredible twenty-eighth week in a row. The online video destination for Ryan’s playtime and unboxing footage hopped up 5% in views to close out the week with nearly 196.7 million of them. Still far behind in the #2 spot is Chainsmokers. The DJ duo’s recent Coldplay collab is still getting plays, helping the channel to a 12% increase and more than 128.8 million views on the week.
ToyScouter is next up in third place for the third week in a row. The channel with a self-described purpose to “entertain and educate kids while showcasing them many different kind of toys” shot up 46% to take home more than 121.6 million views in the week. In the #4 spot is still WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment’s home on YouTube jumped up 47% in weekly views to end the week with more than 112.8 million.
And rounding out the Top 5, once again, is Katy Perry. The 32-year-old hypercolored pop star’s YouTube channel is getting some uptick in plays and thanks to the semi-recent upload of “Chained To The Rhythm” it amassed almost 107.8 million views throughout the week.
The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Jimmy Kimmel Live.
ABC’s Monday through Thursday late-night talk show is seeing a post-Jimmy-Kimmel-Oscars-Host bump in its television ratings. At the same time the show’s YouTube destination is seeing an uptick in views, too. Clips from Kimmel’s Oscar bits (including a Mean Tweetsinstallment and this homage to Matt Damon) are still tacking on views while more recent interviews (with Emma Watson and President George W. Bush) are seeing view counts approaching and in the multimillions. That all helped the Jimmy Kimmel Live channel to a 115% week-over-week increase in views, almost 65.6 million views on the week, and the #20 spot on the U.S. chart.
The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 3,307,265,749 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
VEVO: 15 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Chainsmokers the top-ranked channel of the network at #2.
