The Indian music record label and film production company T-Series is still in the #1 spot on the worldwide chart this week up 10% from the week prior with a somehow even more staggering 679.2 million views. And still in second place Sony Entertainment Television’s Indian entertainment destination SET India. The channel dipped another 4% to score a less-than-a-god-but-still-more-than-a-human number of views. It ended the week at almost 309.6 million.
Hindi-language cable and satellite TV channel zeetv bumped up one slot to third place with nearly 204.1 million views. New to this week’s top 5 is Salih Reis’in Dünyası. The channel that looks like a Turkish version of the defunct Toy Freaksbut not illegal shot up 22% on the week to top out at over 182.6 million views.
And rounding out the Top 5 is once again SAB TV. The YouTube outpost of the Indian pay television channel owned by Sony Pictures Networks closed out the week down 7% with just about 180 million views.
Izabela Stress makes hypercolored “DIY slime and other random videos” on YouTube to a mind-numbing degree of success. She’s consistently clocked 40-something million views a week(!) over the past month, but in this latest seven-day stretch managed to almost double that average. Thanks to a couple particularly popular slime videos – “Slime Smoothie” and (my favorite of the two) “Making Crunch Slime with Funny Balloons #2” – that each have view counts north of six million, Stress’ channel shot up 56% in its week-over-week view count to top out at over 76.4 million views and the #46 spot on the chart.
Here’s a breakdown of the Top 50 Most Viewed channels this week in terms of their countries or origin. It’s interesting to note who’s on top.
India: 14 channels in the Top 50.
United States: 12 channels in the Top 50.
South Korea: 6 channels in the Top 50.
Brazil, Mexico, Philippines, Russia, Thailand, Turkey: 2 channels each in the Top 50.
Australia, Canada, Great Britain, Jordan, Puerto Rico, Sweden: 1 channel each in the Top 50.
