It’s another installment of the Top 100 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and a a LOT of people in the world like watching Indian music videos.
T-Series held onto its first-place position on the most-viewed YouTube channels chart for the second month in a row. India’s self-proclaimed “largest music label and movie studio” climbed 11% in its monthly view count to top out at more than 712.7 million views. In a semi-far-off second place is Ryan ToysReview. Titular Ryan’s library of playtime footage and unboxing videos jumped up 16% in views to end the month with nearly 600.1 million.
Down to the #3 spot is netd müzik. The Turkish Doğan Holding’s YouTube destination hopped up 7% in its monthly view count to amass almost 570 million views in October. Next up in the #4 spot is Chainsmokers. The bubblegum pop DJ Duo is riding very high of it’s latest smash hit “Closer“, upping its monthly view count by 18% to acheive more than 443.6 million views on the month.
And rounding out the Top 5 once again is Toy Freaks. The dramatized version of your regular YouTube family vlog was up 4% to close out the month with just about 434.3 million views.
The honor of one of our our Top Gainers this month goes to the Saturday Night Live.
NBC’s flagship late night sketch show had done particularly well on YouTube lately, thanks almost single-handedly to impeccable impressions from Alec Baldwin and Kate McKinnon. Four of the channel’s top 10 most viewed videos of all-time were released in October and three of those four featured Baldwin’s Donald Trump and McKinnon’s Hillary Clinton going head to head at sendup debates. (The other video was Tom Hanks‘ very special guest appearance on Black Jeopardy.)
All the aforementioned uploads received eight-figure view counts, pushing SNL‘s channel up to a 467% month-over-month increase in views, more than 222.2 million views on the month, and the #42 spot on the worldwide chart.
