It’s another installment of the weekly Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed U.S. YouTube Channels and no one can stop this toy unboxer.

Chart Toppers

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place position on the U.S. chart for an incredible 33rd week. Ryan’s self-named YouTube home where he shows off his unboxing abilities and uploads his playtime footage dipped 22% in views on the week, but still took home nearly 154 million. In a dangerously close second place is WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment’s YouTube outpost shed 40% of its weekly view count to bottom out at more than 151.5 million views.

Up next in the #3 spot is ToyScouter. With uploads that have fully embraced YouTube’s oddball adults-dressing-up-in-Disney-and-superhero-costume phenomena, this YouTube channel ostensibly for kids hopped up 33% in views to end the week with nearly 129.4 million of them. In fourth place is Chainsmokers. The DJ duo’s music videos got played to the tune of almost 114 million views throughout the week.

And rounding out the Top 5 is Katy Perry. The 32-year-old international pop star’s YouTube channel stayed relatively unchanged at more than 97.3 million views.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to BuzzFeed Blue.

The blue-hued destination in BuzzFeed’s color-coded YouTube strategy that focuses on videos related to sports, video games, unsolved mysteries and more had a great week on the world’s largest video sharing site thanks to an epic game of high-stakes hide-and-seek.

BuzzFeed Motion Pictures staffer Mike Carrier wanted to see if his skills of being undiscovered were as good as he thought, so he went and hired a bounty hunter to track him down. The ensuing upload “I Tried To Escape A Bounty Hunter” documents the six-hour endeavour and was very popular online. The video amassed a view count in the several millions and helped push the BuzzFeed Blue channel up 136% in its week-over-week view count to nearly 33.1 million views on the week and the #44 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 2,905,818,556 views. Here’s the distribution of a few of those channels by multi-channel network:

  • VEVO: 14 channels in the U.S. Top 50, with Chainsmokers the top-ranked channel of the network at #4.
  • BuzzFeed: 3 channels in the Top 50, with BuzzFeed Video at #10.
  • BroadbandTV, Maker Studios, Movieclips, NBCU, Studio71: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BBTV’s WorldstarHipHop at #7, Maker’s FGTeeV at #34, and Movieclips’ Movieclips at #9, NBCU’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon at #28, and Studio71’s FamilyFunPack at #18.
