Earlier in November, our ranking of the top 50 US-based channels of the week was dominated by major news organizations, which earned big viewership thanks to their live streaming coverage of the 2020 US presidential election. With that event now in the rearview mirror, we’re seeing more typical results in our latest weekly chart. Among channels based in the US, categories like kid-friendly content and music are delivering strong results, as they have for much of YouTube’s existence.
Kids Diana Show has claimed the #1 spot in this chart for the third week in a row. The family vlog, which chronicles the life of its titular Ukranian-American girl, earned 741.3 million weekly views, which was enough to secure its perch atop our US-only ranking. The channel it supplanted on its way to the #1 spot, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes, is now hot on its heels. The Southern California-based animation brand registered a 5% week-over-week traffic bump in our latest charts and claimed a total of 702.6 million weekly views.
For the second straight week, third place in our American chart went to Vlad and Niki, another family vlog with Slavic roots. Despite a slight viewership dip, Vlad and Niki scooped up 596.9 million weekly views and is fast approach 40 billion lifetime hits.
The final two positions in our US-based top five were similarly unchanged since last week. Like Nastya added 434.1 million weekly views; that was a high enough total to cement another fourth-place finish for the popular family vlog. Toys and Colors rounded out our top five once again after notching 289.8 million weekly views, which was sufficient to hold off sixth-place finisher WWE.
If you’re not up on your hip-hop, you may not be familiar with the Louisiana-born rapper YoungBoy Never Broke Again, who is also known as NBA YoungBoy or just plain YoungBoy.
No matter what you call him, the 21-year-old is turning heads on YouTube, where his new music is bringing in millions of views. Just hours after announcing a new mixtape, titled Until I Return, YoungBoy dropped 14 new songs on his YouTube channel, as well as a fresh music video, which features the song “Thrasher.”
Powered by the popularity of his brand new mixtape, YoungBoy made his way into our US-only top 50, with his YouTube channel peaking at #49. His seven-day returns include 55.9 million weekly views, a figure that represents a 48% increase over the previous week. Based on the ad revenue that will surely come from all those views, YoungBoy may live up to his name and truly be never broke again.
