This week on the top 50 most viewed YouTube channels worldwide: A resoundingly dominant Indian record label, a number of kid-friendly channels jockeying for position, and one very cold YouTube star. Read on to see what changes November brought to the most-watched channels in the world.
T-Series is still atop our ranking of the most viewed channels of the week on YouTube. The indefatigable Indian entertainment destination, which now has more than 130 billion lifetime views to its name, added 865.3 million weekly views to that tally over our most recent seven-day measurement period. Amazingly, that total was 10% smaller than what T-Series accrued the week before, but it was still sturdy enough for the record label to hold onto the title of “most viewed YouTube channel of the week.”
There was a mild surprise behind T-Series at #2, with Kids Diana Show moving up two spots from last week to reach the runner-up spot. The Ukranian-American family vlog received 767.1 million weekly views, which represented a 10% week-over-week traffic bump. That viewership surge was strong enough for Kids Diana Show to surpass Vlad and Niki, which fell back a spot from last week. That kid-friendly hub is now #3, counting 757.1 million weekly views in our latest analysis.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes, which led this list earlier in 2020, has now fallen all the way back to fourth place. Its seven-day total of 714.3 million weekly views is still mightily impressive, even if it is a 8% traffic dip from what Cocomelon posted last week. Behind Cocomelon in fifth place is SET India, which rounded out our global top five for the second week in a row. The Sony-owned hub tallied 604.5 million weekly views.
We often see the renowned American YouTuber Jimmy Donaldson, aka MrBeast, in these rankings, especially our weekly rundowns of the most viewed US-based channels. This time around, however, MrBeast is not only one of 50 most viewed American channels of the week, but is one of 50 most viewed channels of the week. Period. No national filter needed.
As per usual, Donaldson owes his YouTube success to the popularity of his viral stunt videos, and this week, two separate clips sent the MrBeast channel soaring. In the first, Donaldson gave away a Lamborghini to a lucky rideshare passenger. In the other, he isolated himself in a house made of ice for 24 hours. Its as if he’s YouTube’s answer to David Blaine, but if Blaine had a group of friends who were constantly trying to play practical jokes on him and moon him.
For Donaldson, exposure to the cold came with a worthwhile reward: hella YouTube views. Over the past seven days, MrBeast received 109.4 million weekly views, an increase of 49% over the traffic the channel received the week prior. Thanks to that growth, Donaldson’s YouTube home went from the 118th spot in our global rankings all the way up to 48th.
