It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and an aging toddler is still on top.

Chart Toppers

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place position on the U.S. chart for the 38th week week in a row. Ryan’s eponymous home for all his toy unboxing videos and playtime footage stayed relatively constant with just about 206.2 million views. Far off in second place is Luis Fonsi. The Puerto Rican music sensation of the moment’s channel went up 8% to close out the week with nearly 161 million views.

Next up in the #3 spot is Katy Perry. The international pop star’s latest music video for “Bon Appétit” helped push her channel up 37% to top out at more than 128.9 million views. That pushed WWE down to fourth place. The online video destination for all things World Wrestling Entertainment dipped 2% to take home nearly 123.8 million views on the week.

And rounding out the Top 5 is Shakira. The other international pop star towards the top of the charts also recently dropped a new single, pushing her channel up 31% to almost 111.6 million views during the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Miley Cyrus.

Despite the aforementioned upticks for pop stars in the Top 5, Miley Cyrus had the biggest week-over-week viewership gains on YouTube in the U.S. charts. The 24-year-old’s online music video destination dropped its first single in over 17 months. “Malibu” easily racked up a view count in the tens of millions, helping Cyrus’ channel to an 861% week-over-week increase in views, nearly 44.7 million views on the week, and the #31 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 3,060,554,954 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 Luis Fonsi the top-ranked channel of the network at #2.
  • Maker Studios, Studio71: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with Maker’s FGTeeV at #16 and Studio71’s FamilyFunPack at #11.
