Toy Freaks is in the #1 spot for the third week running. The online video home of Victoria, Annabelle, and their Father’s kinda real, kinda fictional family vlog and playtime channel dipped 14% in views, but still racked up nearly 200.7 million of them. In a distant second place is T-Series. The self-proclaimed largest music label and movie studio in India scored over 150 million views in the week.
netd müzik is next up in third place. The Turkish music conglomerate’s YouTube destination was up 4% in views to top out at more than 136.8 million. Up next in fourth place is WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment’s YouTube destination dipped 8% to bottom out at just about 113.9 million views.
And rounding out the Top 5 once again is Ryan ToysReview. Four-year-old Ryan’s online video repository took a 3% hit, but still amassed over 113.5 million views during the week.
The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to NBC Sports.
NBC’s YouTube destination for all thing sports (which was established four years ago for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London) saw a predictable quadrennial uptick in views as the Rio Olympics kicked off on August 5, 2016. The $1.22 billion the Peacock shelled out for distribution rights seems to have paid off on TV and also had a positive effect on the network’s YouTube channel. NBC Sports is up 2,550% week-over-week in views, having accumulated almost 65.1 million views on the week and claiming the #22 spot on the worldwide chart.
[Editor’s Note: This is where I would normally embed a video from the aforementioned channel, but NBC’s disabled YouTube embedding for its Olympic clips. Curiously, though, you can embed Instagram clips.]
