There’s no surprise at the front of the U.S. Top 50. For years, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes has proved itself capable of regular, high-nine-digit weekly viewership, and that did not change at the end of February. The California-based business earned 572 million views, most of them coming from young kids, and that was good enough for it to hang on as the #1 channel in our star-spangled ranking.
Speaking of young kids, one of them stars on the #2 channel in this week’s U.S. Top 50. The titular star of Like Nastya entertains an audience of more than 87 million subscribers with her cheery and fun-loving personality. After placing third in this chart a week ago, Nastya moved up to second place, receiving 552.5 million weekly views in our latest count.
The U.S. runner-up from last week, Kids Diana Show, traded places with Like Nastya in our up-to-date U.S. Top 50. The channel’s titular star is a Ukraine-born youngster who now has a home with her family in the Miami area. With jubilant, bright videos, Kids Diana Show is able to entertain a large audience; its latest seven-day total topped out at 458.4 million weekly views.
Have you had enough family vlogs with roots in Eastern Europe? Because the #4 channel in this week’s U.S. Top 50 fits that bill as well. Vlad and Niki is the home of two titular boys, whose adventures are shared for the world to see. The two toddlers earned 419.3 million weekly views during the final week of February; with that total, they finished fourth in our U.S. Top 50 for the second straight week.
PaulVuTV makes its first-ever appearance in our U.S. top five this week. The YouTube Shorts channel follows in the footsteps of Dhar Mann by offering moralistic content to viewers. That approach earned PaulVuTV 334.9 million weekly views this time out.
Last week, in this space, I talked about the NFL’s big plans for the offseason. As one American sports league figures out ways to overcome the sleepy part of its schedule, another one is dunking on the competition.
I’m talking, of course, about the NBA, but instead of detailing the Association’s own activity on YouTube, I want to give a shout-out to House of Highlights. The cross-platform success story is arguably the most convenient place to find NBA highlights and footage on YouTube.
So how did House of Highlights make it into our U.S. Top 50 this week? Well, its coverage of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend certainly helped. Forget highlights — the channel posted the entirety of this year’s Slam Dunk Contest. I must say that the exploits of high-flying hoopsters are more fun when they’re not interrupted by commercials every two seconds.
This video and others like it helped House of Highlights reach 45th place in our most-recent U.S. Top 50. Its 83.2 million weekly views represent a week-over-week viewership bump of 13%.
Don’t be shocked if we see House of Highlights re-enter this ranking sometime in April, May, and June. Those are the months associated with the NBA playoffs, so there will be a lot of big plays to share with the viewing public.
This week, there are 23 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
