It’s another weekly installment of the Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide. And T-Series is – you guessed it – still on top.
T-Series is still at the top spot of the charts and it’s still there by a LOT. The Indian music record label and film production company dipped 3% in its weekly view count, but still amassed an amazing 692 million views. Holding strong at second place only a few hundred millions behind is Cocomelon. The online video destination for traditional and fresh nursery rhymes (and the only channel in the Top 5 that hails from the US) racked up more than 489.9 million views throughout the week.
Yet again in third place is SET India. The YouTube home of Sony Entertainment Television’s Indian iteration was up 3% to top out at over 353.8 million views. In the #4 spot is still Badabun. The Mexican YouTube channel that’s gained seemingly international appeal from its its Exponiendo Infieles series (where host Lizbeth Rodríguez interviews couples to see if any partner is cheating on the other) ended the week up 10% at over 325.2 million views.
And rounding out the Top for the second week in a row is zeetv. The Hindi-language cable and satellite TV channel was up 8% to end the seven-day timeframe with almost 232.7 million views.
Add Family GamesTV to the list of wacky kids channels with insane view counts.
Headlined by preadolescent (and presumably sisters) Esma and Asya, Family GamesTV features all the now classic tropes of YouTube children’s programming that gets crazy high viewership. Namely that’s weird, hyper-colored, quasi-educational hijinks with a lot of rudimentary sound edits, basic animation, and the occasional appearance of a parental figure.
The Turkish channel (their About Page says United States, but the family at least started out in Turkey – and their most popular videos are mostly titled in the language) had a particularly successful week, shooting up 54% to top out at more than 110.4 million views and the #28 spot on the chart.
