DisneyCollectorBR is still in the #1 spot with some massive viewership. The internet’s premiere online video catalog of videos featuring the latest and greatest in popular children’s toys saw a 17% month-over-month decrease in views, but still racked up more than 427.73 million views during the short 28-day month. Taylor Swift is next up in a distant second place. The country-turned-pop star’s music video library’s view count didn’t shake off any views and saw a 1% increase to top out just shy of 363.9 million views on the month.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is up next in the #3 spot. The YouTube outpost of NBC’s flagship talk show ended February with almost 320.9 million views. LittleBabyBum and its repository of classic songs for your kids came in next at fourth place. The channel keeps getting plays, witnessed a 5% uptick in views, and ended the month with nearly 315.9 million of them.
And rounding out the Top 5 is mashamedvedtv. The YouTube channel that’s home to the seemingly very popular Russian cartoon Маша и Медведь was up 7% on the month and racked up more than 308 million views.
Savvy online video viewers will notice that Felix Kjellberg‘s PewDiePie channel is not in the Top 5 this month. Looking at our data, the channel saw a negative view count during February 2015 numbering in the 100s of millions. That could be an error on behalf of YouTube or it could be the result of a legitimate view count audit. The world’s largest video sharing site sometimes makes mistakes when tallying view counts and then later may take away views from a channel if the company finds a miscalculation. But regardless of how the situation came to be, the data we receive from YouTube is the data we’re sticking with. We’ll update the numbers ASAP if we receive any updated metrics or information.
The honor of one our Top Gainers this month goes to the aforementioned Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
A Saved By The Bell reunion, uncanny Britney Spears impression from Christina Aguilera, and a laundry list of appearances by popular celebrities helped to give the YouTube home of NBC’s late night talk show an incredible month on the world’s most popular video sharing site. In the short 28 days of February, the channel witnessed a 92% month-over-month increase in views, nearly 320.9 million views in total, and the #3 spot on the worldwide chart.
The Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube channels this month amassed in aggregate a total of 14,232,360,817 views. Here’s a look at the distribution of those channels broken down by the most-represented YouTube Multi-Channel Networks on the chart:
