All of the top five channels in the chart experienced week-over-week viewership increases of at least 20%. And all of the channels in the American ranking secured at least 82 million views during the week that was.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes got a great holiday present this week: It got to hold onto the #1 position in our U.S. Top 50. The California-based content provider maintained its status as America’s most-watched YouTube channel by hauling in 748.5 million weekly views. Only three other U.S.-based channels managed to obtain even half as much traffic as Cocomelon during our most-recent measurement period.
The other U.S.-based channel to climb above the 500 million view plateau this week is Like Nastya. The Florida-set vlog is perhaps the most notable family channel on YouTube, with its seven-year-old star emerging as a powerhouse in the world of children’s content. Over seven days, Nastya and co. picked up 690.6 million weekly views.
The highest-ranking YouTube Shorts channel in our most recent U.S. Top 50 is Marta and Rustam. The short-form hub, previously known as Khamitovy, is the home of its titular couple, who prank each other and take on challenges together. The pair notched 440.8 million weekly views during the last full week of December.
Another YouTube Shorts channel is hot on Marta and Rustam’s heels. SMOL, which proliferates all sorts of micro-videos via YouTube’s TikTok competitor, finished fourth in our most current U.S. Top 50. Around Christmas, it added 375.9 million weekly views to its lifetime total.
Toys and Colors rounded out this week’s U.S. top five. The kid-friendly channel improved its ranking by three spots after receiving 341.4 million weekly views.
In No Way Home, the latest chapter in the Spider-Man film series, an anomaly in the multiverse causes heroes and villains from previous Spider-Man titles to return to theaters. This means that fans will be eager to rediscover the memorable moments from those characters’ first on-screen appearances in the franchise. And that presents an opportunity for channels like TopMovieClips.
As its name implies, TopMovieClips shares scenes from popular films, particularly the ones from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the days after the release of No Way Home, TopMovieClips uploaded several videos featuring previous Spider-Man villains Doc Ock, Electro, and the Green Goblin — all of whom return in the new feature. These clips have already been viewed millions of times. One of Alfred Molina’s best Doc Ock scenes from 2004’s Spider-Man 2 has snagged 8.4 million views on its own.
Bolstered by all this web-slinging content, TopMovieClips had a big week, vaulting its way to 45th place in our U.S. top 50. The 91 million weekly views the channel received in our latest count represented a 68% increase over its previous traffic total. I’m glad that the brains behind TopMovieClips had the spidey sense to upload all of these years-old clips at just the right time.
This week, there are 26 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
