It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and a toddler still remains in the top spot.

Chart Toppers

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place spot on the U.S. chart for the sixth week in a row. The four-year-old’s online video repository of playtime footage hopped up 2% in views to top out at nearly 120.6 million of them on the week. Toy Freaks is next up in a distant second place. The dramatized version of your regular YouTube family vlog channel stayed relatively constant in its view count, taking home just about 97.4 million views during the week.

In third place is FamilyFunPack. America’s favorite vlogging family of seven ended the week with almost 92.2 million views. Up next in the #4 spot is Justin Bieber. The Bieb’s online video catalog continues to rack up a ton of views, closing out this week just shy of 87 million.

And rounding out the Top 5 is Chainsmokers. The pop DJ duo is still riding high on the charts after their latest hit “Closer“, attracting more than 85.5 million views in the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to Casey Neistat.

The lo-fi-filmmaker-with-an-HBO-show-in-the-2010-turned-prolific-almost-daily-YouTube-vlogger had a great week on the world’s largest video sharing site thanks to a steady supply of well-shot, well-edited uploads and a first class upgrade on Emirates.

Neistat was bumped up to a ticket with a $21,635.30 fare on a recent flight from Dubai to New York City. During the 14-hour trip, he documented all the ridiculous bells and whistles the plane had to offer its most elite passengers. Neistat wasn’t paid by Emirates for the promo, but the airline certainly got its money’s worth and Neistat got a ton of views in addition to an almost inconceivable flying experience.

The $21,000 First class Airplane Seat” video quickly racked up an eight-figure view count, helping Neistat’s channel to a 82% week-over-week increase in views, more than 31.6 million views on the week, and the #42 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 2,479,625,886 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 16 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Justin Bieber the top-ranked channel of the network at #4.
  • BuzzFeed, Fullscreen, Maker Studios, Movieclips, Studio71, WMG: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BuzzFeed’s BuzzFeedVideo at #12, Fullscreen’s PopularMMOs at #28, Maker’s Markiplier at #22, Movieclips’ Movieclips Trailers at #21, Studio71’s FamilyFunPack at #3, and WMG’s Fueled By Ramen at #10.
