The fantastic fivesome got more weekly YouTube views than any other channels, and all of the members of that group have been crushing it for a long time. In terms of lifetime views, they’re five of the top six channels in our latest Global Top 50.
In a week where the top five is very impressive, T-Series remains in a class all by itself.
The Indian record label was the only channel to surpass 800 million views this week. It also surpassed 900 million, finishing with 902.4 million weekly views. That total secured T-Series’ second-straight trip to the front of our Global Top 50.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes took second place this week, which means that it and T-Series have run one-two, in some order, in each Global Top 50 chart of 2022. The American animator’s latest seven-day sum topped out at 794.1 million weekly views, which was 8% more traffic than what it recorded in our previous chart.
Like T-Series and Cocomelon, the next two channels in our worldwide ranking maintained the chart positions they reached a week ago. SET India, a Sony-owned hub that delivers TV content to an audience of 125 million subscribers, held onto third place by scoring 697.4 million weekly views. Among channels that cracked our latest Global Top 50, SET India is third in terms of both weekly and lifetime views; it trails T-Series and Cocomelon in both categories.
Kids Diana Show got a boost this week, increasing its viewership by 13% week-over-week. That uptick helped the Florida-based family vlog hold off the competition; it ranked fourth in the world for the second week in a row. Diana’s YouTube home stayed above the 500 million view threshold and ultimately registered 593 million weekly views.
SET India isn’t the only Sony-owned channel in our global top five, because Sony SAB rounded out that rarefied group. Over seven days, the TV-adjacent channel picked up 487.9 million weekly views.
There was one channel based in Italy in this week’s Global Top 50, and no, it’s not Khaby Lame.
PANDA BOI is the home of a globe-trotting creator who first got a following on TikTok and flies the Italian tricolore on his YouTube Shorts channel. His videos, many of which utilize a “man on the street” approach, toe the line between authentic and staged. Even if they’re all set-ups, however, that doesn’t take away from their star’s charisma.
The typical PANDA BOI video goes something like this: Panda makes a ridiculous lopsided offer to a passerby. Sometimes, they take the bad side of the deal for no reason. Then Panda alters the deal, which sometimes changes the passerby’s decision, and sometimes doesn’t. It’s a weird form of dry humor that’s hard to explain, so just see for yourself:
Odd as these videos may be, they’re working wonders for the PANDA BOI. The clip embedded above has 144.5 million total views, and it helped propel its star to a 27th-place finish in this week’s Global Top 50. Over seven days, PANDA BOI’s YouTube operation pulled in 225.3 million weekly views, which represented a 12% week-over-week increase.
Judging from the comments I’ve read, some people feel the passersby in these videos should have made different choices. Well, if that’s how you feel about PANDA BOI, all I can say is see you later, boi.
