A popular gaming hub and a YouTube Shorts standout paced the field, with many other similar channels following right behind them.
LankyBox is #1 again. The home of creators Justin and Adam continued its dominance of our U.S. top 50 by utilizing its typical varied blend of formats, categories, and videos. Between its gaming Let’s Plays, its YouTube Shorts clips, and its comedic sketches, LankyBox accumulated 315.8 million weekly views. That’s a 27% lower total than the one LankyBox posted seven days ago, but it’s still high enough to claim the top spot in our U.S. ranking.
SMOL, last week’s U.S. #1, dropped back to #2. The YouTube Shorts content producer, which is benefiting from YouTube’s promotion of its TikTok competitor, snagged 302.9 million weekly views in our latest count. It also surpassed two million subscribers — not a bad total for a channel whose videos rarely run longer than a few seconds.
With 256.7 million weekly views, the Ukrainian-American channel Kids Diana Show picked up third place in our U.S. top 50. The channel’s young stars, Diana and her brother Roma, continue to star in popular vlogs that are appropriate for young children. Those videos have now collected more than 63 billion views to date.
SportsNation is this week’s U.S. #4. Like the top two channels in the chart, this one focuses its efforts on YouTube Shorts, where its athletic clips are quite popular. Bolstered, perhaps, by a busy time in the sporting calendar — there are MLB playoff games, NFL Sundays, and international soccer matches happening at the same time — SportsNation picked 195.6 million weekly views to reach its current chart position.
Vlad and Niki rounded out this week’s U.S. top five. The family vlog, which has Russian roots, added 181.3 million weekly views to its lifetime total and moved up two spots from the position it occupied last week.
Bobby Parrish is a professional chef who has written a cookbook that promotes the keto diet. On YouTube, his FlavCity channel is a great resource for any chef who needs tips on cooking a chicken breast. These days, how ever, the principal star of FlavCity isn’t Parrish — it’s his two-year-old daughter.
FlavCity offers both short-form and long-form videos, but the channel’s recent success has been driven by the former clips. Over our most-recent seven-day measurement period, Parrish’s channel picked up 78.9 million weekly views, which allowed it to reach 33rd place in our U.S. top 50. FlavCity’s latest seven-day viewership represents a 7% week-over-week uptick, and it is helping Parrish grow his channel, as he’s closing in on two million subscribers.
When you examine FlavCity’s success, the role of Parrish’s two-year-old becomes evident. The channel’s seven most-watched videos are all native to YouTube Shorts and all feature her. One clip, in which she drives an adorable toddler-sized cart around a supermarket, has picked up more than 53 million views.
Yes, there are a few things that will always be true: Adorable two-year-olds will always do well on YouTube, and everyone’s gotta eat. Parrish has combined those two truths splendidly, and FlavCity is thriving as a result.
