It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide and a LOT of people watch Indian entertainment online.
T-Series is in first place on the worldwide chart for the eighteenth week in a row. India’s self-proclaimed largest music label and movie studio ended the week down 17% on the week, but still scored a massive almost 178.2 million views. In a very close second place is Ryan ToysReviews. Titular Ryan’s playtime footage and unboxing videos dipped 15% to take home just about 162.5 million views on the week.
In the #3 spot is YouTube. The world’s largest video-sharing site’s own Spotlight Channel had a helluva week, racking up more than 158 million views thanks to its annual Rewind video. In fourth place is Toy Freaks. The dramatized version of a family vlog channel closed out the week with over 134.5 million views.
And rounding out the Top 5 is PewDiePie. Felix Kjellberg’s Let’s Play gaming channel saw an uptick after resuming its regularly scheduled programming. It amassed more than 113.5 million views in the week.
One of our Top Gainers this week goes to the aforementioned YouTube Spotlight.
The video site’s very own channel where it releases videos related to various initiatives in which the company is engaged throughout the year (like voting and April Fools’ Day) had a very good week thanks to the release of the 2016 iteration of YouTube Rewind. This year’s version featured over 200 creators and was shot in 18 countries. And it got a lot of views on YouTube. Over 73 million in the first 24 hours, to be more specific, and currently at 146 million views and counting. That pushed the Spotlight channel up to a 10,480% week-over-week increase in views, more than 158 million views on the week, and the #3 spot on the worldwide chart.
The top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide this week amassed a total of 3,882,541,028 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:
