The abundant traffic among those top hubs shows how competitive our U.S. Top 50 has become. The channel that continues to lead the ranking is outpacing almost all-but-one other YouTube content in the entire world.
For Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes, this week’s Top 50 headline tells a familiar story: Second in the world, first in the U.S. T-Series has knocked Cocomelon out of the #1 spot in our global ranking, but among channels based in America, the Californian producer of colorful animations is still on top. Its 731.5 million weekly views put a 200-million-view gap between it and the next-most trafficked channel.
After placing sixth in last week’s U.S. Top 50, Kids Diana Show has moved up to second place. The Florida-based family program, which broadcasts on YouTube to an audience of more than 88 million subscribers, received 524.4 million weekly views. And that’s just on its English-language channel alone.
SMOL finished right behind Kids Diana Show in third place. The YouTube Shorts channel was able to achieve its highest placement ever in our U.S. Top 50 thanks to the 431.7 million weekly views it accrued over our latest measurement period. The family-friendly channel surpassed six billion lifetime views as well.
Speaking of channels that are setting personal records in the U.S. Top 50, say hello to That Little Puff, which moved all the way up to fourth this week. Puff is a feline “chef” who combines some cute little paws with some delicious-looking food to create YouTube gold. The channel’s seven-day total wound up at 359 million weekly views.
A third-straight YouTube Shorts channel, Marta and Rustam, rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The digital hub also known as Khamitovy notched 340 million weekly views.
BVIRAL‘s YouTube success will confirm all your suspicions about internet culture.
The channel is essentially an aggregator of user-generated content from across the world. And while it has fulfilled its title by going viral with all sorts of conceits — everything from trampoline tricks to broken teeth — its most popular category is (you guessed it) animal videos.
Whether you’re a resourceful husky, a doting cow, or a protective horse, there’s a place for you on BVIRAL. Dozens of animal clips on the channel have pulled in more than 10 million views thanks to YouTube Shorts.
When you count up all the cats and dogs and witty humans, BVIRAL emerges as a very popular channel. During our most-recent measurement period, the channel accrued 100 million weekly views, which was an increase of 64% over the previous week’s total. And yet, even though BVIRAL soared into nine-digit views, it only reached 45th place in our U.S. Top 50. That’s just how strong the competition is.
This week, there are 29 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
