In each of the past three weeks, the owner of the top spot in our U.S. Top 50 has changed. And yet, over that time, only two channels have held our American ranking’s top position.

For that to be possible, two channels have to be flip-flopping with one another. Learn more about that pair by reading on:
Like Nastya, which sat at the front of our U.S. Top 50 during the first week of March, has returned to that perch.
The Floridian family vlog, whose titular star is often referred to as the most-subscribed individual kids’ creator on YouTube, was one of two U.S.-based channels to get at least 500 million views this week. Its seven-day total of 562 million weekly views was slightly smaller than the figure it posted a week ago, but since some other top channels also endured traffic dips, Like Nastya found its way back to the #1 position in our U.S. chart.
Like Nastya has gotten to the top of this ranking twice since the start of March, and both times, it pushed Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes out of the nation-leading position. Cocomelon, based in California, had to settle for second place in this week’s U.S. Top 50. That’s a rare occurrence these days, since Cocomelon is #1 in our U.S. chart more often than it isn’t. Even though it’s currently #2, its viewership is still impressive. In our latest count, it picked up 521.3 million weekly views.
Kids Diana Show is in third place in the up-to-date U.S. Top 50, just as it was a week ago. The home of a Ukraine-born, Florida-based family, Kids Diana made it three straight kid-friendly hubs at the top of this chart. Its latest seven-day count resulted in 333.6 million weekly views, which puts Kids Diana far behind the top two channels in this ranking and far ahead of everyone else.
The only channel in this week’s U.S. top five that plies its trade in the gaming and pop culture categories is LankyBox. With their combo of short-form and long-form YouTube content, LankyBox stars Justin and Adam have become familiar faces in this chart, pulling in about 20.4 billion lifetime views in all. The channel’s activity from the last seven days contributed 291.8 million weekly views to that total.
Vlad and Niki rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. Like Nastya and Diana, the two boys in this channel’s name are the stars of wholesome vlogs. Over seven days, their content earned them 291.2 million weekly views.
If you want to stand out on YouTube, it helps to have a signature look. Cosmo Guy, who sports waves of bleach-blonde hair and a black face mask, is becoming a familiar sight on YouTube Shorts.
Cosmo Guy’s recognizable get-up is only the start of his mass appeal. He seems comfortable making videos on many different topics. Among his most-watched YouTube Shorts clips, there are cotton candy hacks, water balloon cluster bombs, and behind-the-scenes looks. Oh, and did we mention the Minecraft? He’s got so much content related to it, including this tutorial for building the game’s “glass” windows IRL:
All this variety (not to mention a dedicated upload schedule) has led Cosmo Guy to nearly 2.4 billion lifetime views on YouTube. In the past seven days along, he notched 89.4 million weekly views, which was good for a 19% week-over-week increase that jumped him from just outside the U.S. Top 50 up to 36th place. Among YouTube Shorts channels based in the U.S., Combo Guy’s weekly traffic ranked 20th.
And the kicker? He’s done all of this in one year, since he only launched on YouTube last March. I’d say it’s been a pretty good 12 months for him!
This week, there are 28 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
