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 Ryan still reigns supreme.

Chart Toppers

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place position on the U.S. chart for the 39th week week in a row. The preadolescent’s eponymous YouTube channel where he uploads toy unboxing clips and playtime footage increased its weekly view count by 4% to top out at almost 214.8 million views on the week. Still far behind in second place is Luis Fonsi. The Puerto Rican pop star’s online video music library was up 14% to amass over 184.1 million views on the week.

Next up in third place is Clash of Clans. The incredibly popular freemium mobile MMO strategy video game scored more than 171.9 million views during the week. That pushed Katy Perry down to the #4 spot. The international pop star’s latest music video for “Bon Appétit” continues to get plays on YouTube, pushing her channel up 28% to close out the week with just about 164.7 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5 is ToyScouter. The channel that features adults dressing up in Disney princess and Marvel superhero costumes before acting out oddball scenarios was up 8% to take home more than 117.2 million views in the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Saturday Night Live.

The season finale of SNL didn’t disappoint in terms of television ratings. And clips from the live coast-to-coast broadcast performed well on YouTube, too. The Cold Open featuring some of this year’s most popular politically-oriented impersonations singing the late Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” amassed over four million views by itself. Add that number to the views from the handful of sketches featuring the host of the evening, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, and you get a 128% week-over-week increase in views, nearly 59.3 million views on the week, and the #21 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 3,494,802,830 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 Luis Fonsi the top-ranked channel of the network at #2.
  • Studio71: 3 channels in the Top 50, with FamilyFunPack at #18.
  • CBS, Fullscreen, Maker Studios, NBCU, WMG: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden at #11, Fullscreen’s PopularMMOs at #23, Maker’s FGTeeV at #19, NBCU’s Saturday Night Live at #21, and WMG’s Fueled By Ramen at #28.
