Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers in the U.S. this week goes to Ellen.

The YouTube home of Ellen DeGeneres’ eponymous syndicated daytime talk show saw a 63% week-over-week in crease in views. Regularly scheduled dancing, celebrity interviews, and typical DeGeneres hijinks contributed to the uptick, but a scary prank on Nicki Minaj gave the channel its biggest boost. The screams from the hip hop star helped DeGeneres’ channel end the week with more than 33 million views and in the #17 spot on the U.S. chart.
