So there were no surprises at the top of the chart, but read on to learn which American channels are trending upward this week.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes is back on top.
The California-based channel, which cranks out kid-friendly animations at a blistering pace, got more views this week than any other U.S.-based channel. To be exact, it got 538.9 million weekly views, which a similar sum to the one it posted seven days ago. Even though Cocomelon’s traffic didn’t increase, another channel’s precipitous fall allowed it to reclaim this chart’s loftiest position.
Like Nastya moved up two spots to earn runner-up status in our U.S. Top 50. The Florida-based channel, which entertains a young audience thanks to the antics of its titular star, claimed 413.2 million weekly views during the week that was. That 19% week-over-week traffic jump helped Nastya and co. hone in on a big milestone. Next week, the channel will surpass 75 billion lifetime views.
The channel that finished first in this ranking last week dropped back to third in our latest count. Kids Diana Show had a huge audience seven days ago, but it lost 35% of its viewership week-over-week and tumbled to its current position in the U.S. Top 50. The family vlog, which has a home in Florida, still posted an impressive total of 383.7 million weekly views.
LeoNata Family made its first appearance in our U.S. top five a week ago, and this time out, the YouTube Shorts channel proved it’s not a one-hit-wonder. With 338.1 million weekly views, the all-ages hub ranked fourth in the U.S. Top 50. It beat out all other U.S.-based YouTube Shorts channels in the process.
After generating 324 million weekly views, the colorful videos of D Billions rounded out our latest U.S. top five. The kid-friendly destination, whose hosts wear colorful wigs, is closing in on 20 billion lifetime views.
Does the start of yet another week have you feeling down? If so, you need 50 CCs of Feedium straight to the frontal cortex.
Based on its Instagram bio, Feedium delivers a “daily dose of happy content.” On YouTube Shorts, that focus includes a wide variety of videos, but the most common emotions you’ll see within the channel’s short-form library are expressions of love. There’s a father’s love for his unborn child, a dog’s love for his vet, a girl’s love for her best friend, and much more.
So among all these good-natured videos, what does true love look like? That would be the channel’s most-watched clip, in which a guy covers the corner of a table so that his partner doesn’t smash her head against it. As a perpetually clumsy person, that’s the loving I need.
Positivity sells on the internet, and Feedium is currently rich with viewership. Over seven days, it picked up 119.1 million weekly views, which put it in 24th place on our U.S. Top 50. A 53% week-over-week traffic increase is nice, but Feedium still has a long way to go if it wants to challenge the top dogs in our American ranking. It has just 247.5 million lifetime views, but to get more, all it needs is love.
This week, there are 26 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
