That said, there’s no surprise at the top of the ranking. The channel that has led all U.S.-based hubs in weekly views throughout 2022 continues to hold that title.
Among American YouTube channels, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes is in a class all by itself. The all-ages hub, based in California but owned by London-based Moonbug, added 588.6 million weekly views this week. That made it the only U.S.-based channel to gain more than a half-billion views during the third week of February. That’s actually a down week for Cocomelon — its YouTube traffic dropped by 10% since we last updated you.
Lately, the #2 channel in our U.S. Top 50 has been just as unchanging as #1. Once again, Kids Diana Show slotted into that position. The Floridian family vlog earned 425.7 million weekly views in our latest count. It also pulled in subscriber number 90 million.
The biggest upward move in this week’s U.S. top five came from Like Nastya. The home of the top YouTube kidfluencer jumped from fifth place up to third thanks to a week-over-week traffic boost of 13%. That upswing pushed Nastya and her family up to 400.9 million weekly views.
Last week’s U.S. #3, Vlad and Niki, fell back to fourth place to make room for Nastya’s ascension. The homepage of two energetic boys experienced a 6% week-over-week boost of its own, and ended up with 388.8 million weekly views. That fresh viewership allowed the channel to surpass 60 billion lifetime views on YouTube.
Toys and Colors rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The bright, cheery content hub added 326.2 million weekly views to its lifetime total.
Super Bowl halftime shows, when properly executed, can have a second life on YouTube. Shakira and J. Lo’s January 2020 fiesta has pulled in 227 million views since it was uploaded to the NFL’s official channel.
A more recent halftime performance has received 61 million views, even though it occurred less than two weeks ago. I’m talking, of course, about the Super Bowl LVI extravaganza featuring Dr. Dre, Snoop Dogg, Mary J. Blige, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, special guest 50 Cent, and the spirit of West Coast legend 2pac.
This video (which we would normally embed below, but the NFL still doesn’t fully understand this whole digital media thing and has disallowed that YouTube feaure) the NFL to a big week on YouTube. The gridiron hub reached 25th place in our U.S. Top 50 after adding 114.6 million weekly views in the days after Super Bowl LVI.
The NFL usually charts around the time of its Big Game, but there’s evidence to suggest the League will keep up its pace during the offseason. Within the past week, it has uploaded three different highlight supercuts that each run for at least an hour. Turns out the secret to YouTube is that you just have to upload hours and hours of content every single day.
This week, there are 24 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
