Ryan ToysReview is the most-viewed YouTube channel of the month. The online video outpost that’s home to four-year-old Ryan’s home video-y toy reviews and playtime footage hopped up 7% in views to end the 31 days of May with more than 653 million views. In a distant second place is T-Series. The YouTube home of the self-proclaimed #1 music label in India stayed relatively constant in its month-over-month view count, racking up almost 572.3 million views on the month.

Next up in the #3 spot is Webs & Tiaras – Toy Monster Compilations.

Up next in fourth place is netd müzik. Doğan Holding’s Turkish music arm ended the month with more than 523 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5 is WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment’s home on YouTube dipped 14% to slam down just about 515.7 million views in the month.
