It’s another weekly installment of the Tubefilter Chart of the Top 50 Most Viewed YouTube Channels Worldwide. And, yeah, T-Series is still on top. But not by as much as before.
T-Series is still at the top spot of the chart for seemingly infinity weeks in a row, but the Indian music record label and film production company doesn’t have as much real estate between it and the channel at #2. T-Series dipped 2% to amass almost 690.2 million views throughout the week. That’s only 58 million or so views ahead of Cocomelon. The US-based nursery rhyme channel was down 6% to bottom out an an amazing 632.4 million views.
SET India is in its apparently perennial third place position. Sony Entertainment Television’s YouTube home for its Indian iteration was up 2% to over 353.6 million views. Badabun jumped up to #4. The Mexican YouTube famous for its Exponiendo Infieles series (where host Lizbeth Rodríguez interviews couples to see if either partner has issues with fidelity) ended the week on a 4% dip and just about 269.9 million views.
And rounding out the Top 5 is Kids DianaShow. The family-friendly vlog featuring kids who still count their birthdays on two hands (and maybe even one) shot up 11% to receive nearly 260.1 million views in the week.
Mr. Gengar is one of our Top Gainers this week. And the channel’s exemplary of an interesting YouTube genre that’s starting to gain some serious traction.
Judging by the name and avatar, you’d think Mr. Gengar is a typical gaming or animated-oriented YouTube channel with some camera-friendly Millennial or Gen Xer at the helm. It’s not. The entirety of the channel’s content library – all of its more than 3,142 videos that have amassed over 1.7 billion views and 2.4 million subscribers – is re-uploaded Dragon Ball Z.
Sometimes dozens of videos of the Japanese anime television series are uploaded a day and tens – if not hundreds – of them have at least view counts in the single-digit millions. And none of them are monetized. Each have some form of the disclaimer “All Content in this video is from the Autira de Akira Toriyama and Toei Animation (Non-Profit and only for Fun)” written in Spanish. (The channel’s creator is from somewhere in Mexico.)
You don’t normally think of these kinds of fan accounts living on YouTube. They’re associated more with Tumblr, Instagram, or random web pages. And generally the rights holder would claim them or remove the channel, especially one of this size. But here we are, looking at Mr. Granger’s channel in a week where it saw a 19% increase in views to top out at more than 105.9 million views on the week and the #35 spot on the worldwide 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.
