It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and Europe came together to crown a temporary chart topper.
Ryan ToysReview couldn’t hold onto the first place position for a fifth week in a row, but it was for good reason. While the channel featuring six-year-old Ryan and his home video playtime footage racked up more than 148 million views on the week, it wasn’t enough to beat out Europe. The annual Eurovision Song Contest claimed the #1 spot on the chart amassing nearly 174 million views during the week.
In a close-ish third place is T-Series. The YouTube channel that’s home to the self-described #1 Indian music label ended the week with more than 132.5 million views. Up next in the #4 spot is netd müzik. The music publisher under the banner of the Turkish conglomerate Doğan TV Holding received over 119.2 million views in the week.
And rounding out the Top 5 is Webs & Tiaras – Toy Monster Compilations. The crazy popular channel composed of videos showcasing adults in every day and superhero-y situations while wearing superhero costumes closed out the week with more than 116 million views.
The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Eurovision Song Contest.
The annual international TV song competition that saw 42 countries compete in 2016 for its 61st edition just concluded this past week. And a lot of people watched clips from the contest and the results on YouTube. Thanks to its potential appeal to somewhere close to one billion denizens of the Earth, the Eurovision Song Contest’s channel witnessed a 475% week-over-week increase in views, almost 174 million views in the week, and the #1 spot on the worldwide chart.
All in all, the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels accounted for 3,551,821,899 views last week. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
