If you thought that a week filled with geopolitical chaos would upset the state of our weekly YouTube charts, well, maybe next week. T-Series remains the most-viewed channel in the world, and most of the content hubs chasing it claimed chart positions that were relatively unchanged from last week.
T-Series is still doing great business on YouTube while seeing incremental growth to its weekly viewership. The Indian video hub’s industry-leading tally over the past seven days reached 864.4 million views, a 4% rise over its total from our previous charts. That’s a whole lot of Bollywood movie clips.
The three other children’s video producers that reached the top five last week have all gained on T-Series, thanks to weekly viewership numbers that are accelerating faster than those of the chart-topping channel. The hubs claiming the next three spots behind T-Series are American animation studio Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes (719 million views this week), American vlog Like Nastya (524 million views), and American studio Kids Diana Show (488.9 million views), respectively. All three kid-friendly producers can boast week-over-week viewership growth of at least 8%.
SET India rounded out the top five and cemented the uppermost portion of our rankings as a sandwich of sorts: Indian entertainment destinations on the ends, family-focused channels in the middle. The locus of Sony’s YouTube presence in South Asia pulled in 429.5 million views this week.
Despite a massive shakeup to social orders around the globe, much of which has occurred in the past seven days, very few channels moved far at all in our weekly rankings. The biggest upward move, in terms of chart position, came from Kids Play, yet another of the seemingly endless glut of YouTube channels that both stars young children and is aimed at them.
Info about Kids Play is scant, as its channel description only reads “KidsPlay is a place where kids can have fun and learn with our family friendly videos!” And its video comments are turned off. But even if that secrecy may cause us to raise an eyebrow, we can still credit Kids Play for its big jump, powered by 125.2 million weekly views, which took it from 46th place to 34th. A video featuring a chocolate fountain proved particular popular.
Here’s a breakdown of the Top 50 Most Viewed channels this week in terms of their countries of origin:
India: 16 channels in the Top 50.
United States: 12 channels in the Top 50.
Canada, Thailand, The Phillippines, The United Kingdom, Russia, South Korea, and United Arab Emirates: 2 channels in the Top 50.
Argentina, Jordan, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Vietnam, Turkey, and Romania: 1 channel each in the Top 50.
