Scroll down for this week’s Tubefilter Chart.


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

Chart Toppers

Ryan ToysReview held onto its first-place position on the U.S. chart for an amazing 36th week in a row. Ryan’s eponymous YouTube channel where his parents upload videos showcasing their son’s playtime footage and toy unboxing expertise hopped up 2% in views to top out at nearly 189.9 million views on the week. In a still kinda close-ish second place is Luis Fonsi. The Puerto Rican musician’s channel dropped 2% in weekly views to score more than 154.8 million views throughout the week.

Up next in third place is WWE. World Wrestling Entertainment’s YouTube destination took a modest 6% hit in views to bottom out at nearly 144.8 million of them in the week. Still in the #4 spot is ToyScouter. The channel that’s fully embracing YouTube’s oddball adults-dressing-up-in-Disney-and-superhero-costume phenomena stayed relatively constant in its weekly view count with more than 109.1 million views.

And rounding out the Top 5 is Katy Perry. The international pop star’s online vide music library hopped up 9% in its weekly view count to top out at more than 99.2 million views during the week.

Top Gainers

The honor of one of our Top Gainers this week goes to DJ Khaled, who also claimed the title on this week’s Worldwide Chart.

The YouTube home of the American record producer, radio personality, DJ, executive, author, and social media positivity guru had a great week thanks to its first upload in more than five months. “I’m the One ft. Justin Bieber, Quavo, Chance the Rapper, Lil Wayne” was blessed with an easy eight-figure view count almost immediately after upload. Couple that with Khaled’s music video library and you get a 1,191% week-over-week increase in views, nearly 52.3 million views on the week, and the #22 spot on the U.S. chart.

Channel Distribution

The top 50 most viewed U.S. YouTube channels this week amassed a total of 3,069,146,905 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 Luis Fonsi the top-ranked channel of the network at #2.
  • BuzzFeed, Maker Studios, Studio71, WMG: 2 channels each in the Top 50, with BuzzFeed’s BuzzFeed Video at #18, Maker’s FGTeeV at #14, Studio71’s FamilyFunPack at #12, and WMG’s Fueled By Ramen at #19.
