From week to week, SET India typically ranks as one of the five most-watched channels on YouTube, but as May came to a close, the South Asian TV hub found itself at the top of our global top 50. The Sony-owned channel, which has received more than 88 billion views in all, accrued 648.7 million weekly views over our most recent measurement period. That was a strong enough performance to put it ahead of its compatriot T-Series, which dropped back to #2 after topping this chart last week. The record label still managed to notch an impressive total of 598.8 million weekly views.
Third place in this week’s global top 50 went to Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes, which also occupied that position during our previous update. The highest-ranking American channel in our global chart secured its second-runner-up finish by adding on 531.3 million weekly views.
Last week’s fourth-place finisher managed to hold onto its chart position as well, with Sony SAB retaining its spot in the top five. The comedy-focused channel, which targets the Indian market and serves as a sister channel to SET India, picked up 495.7 million weekly views during our most recent measurement period. That was enough to stay ahead of Vlad and Niki, which moved up one spot to round out this week’s global top five. The Russian-American family vlog registered 412.6 million weekly views.
This week, for the first time in months, a German channel has found its way into our global top 50.
The powerful Deutschlanders who were able to reach our rarefied ranking were the engineers of Marsgizmo, who have used their 3D printing prowess to accrue millions of views. Marsgizmo’s videos utilize multiple formats, with some of them running for several minutes and others utilizing YouTube’s TikTok competitor, YouTube Shorts. Like many other channels, Marzgizmo’s push into the top 50 is driven by its short-form content, such as its brief demonstration of this “3D Printed Tri Axial Tourbillon.”
This is apparently some sort of timekeeping device that doesn’t utilize gravity, but I’ll be perfectly honest and admit that I’ll never quite understand what I’m looking at here, no matter how much I read about it. As one commenter pointed out, comprehension isn’t really required to enjoy Marsgizmo videos.
No matter how fully viewers understand these videos, they continue to watch them. Over a recent seven-day stretch, the German tech channel received 143.8 million weekly views, which was 30% more than what it pulled in a week prior. Thanks to that boost, Marsgizmo was able to move from 54th place in the world all the way up to 37th. The channel should celebrate by 3D printing itself a little trophy.
Here’s a breakdown of the Top 50 Most Viewed channels this week in terms of their countries of origin:
- United States: 17 channels in the Top 50.
- India: 16 channels in the Top 50.
- Argentina, Canada, Russia, and South Korea: 2 channels in the Top 50.
