Sure, the channel at the front of the chart is the one that has led this ranking more than any other contender. But beyond the top spot, many channels shuffled their positions, and there’s an athletic newcomer in the #4 position.
Since the start of July, we’ve posted two U.S. Top 50 charts, and Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes has been on top of both of them.
The children’s media empire, which is based in California but owned by the London-based company Moonbug, now has more than 133 billion lifetime views. 569.8 million of those views came within the past seven days, and though that was 8% fewer hits than what Cocomelon reeled in a week ago, it was still more than enough to hold onto the premier position in our U.S. Top 50.
The second-place finisher in our latest U.S. chart reached runner-up status after increasing its viewership by 38% week-over-week. Seven days ago, Kids Diana Show placed fourth in our star-spangled ranking, but that was before the Florida-based channel picked up 475.1 million weekly views. Look for Diana and co. to zip past 100 million subscribers before the end of the year.
A channel with a lot of similarities to Kids Diana Show receded one spot to end up in the #3 position in our U.S. Top 50. Like Nastya, the Florida-based channel led by its titular kidfluencer, lost 18% of its viewership week-over-week. As a result, it fell behind a family-friendly channel it outpaced last week, even though it still received 317 million weekly views.
The biggest twist in the U.S. Top 50 came in the #4 spot. Omar Raja – ESPN, which placed eighth a week ago, jumped up four spots after snagging 297.3 million weekly views. The sports channel, whose titular reporter previously worked at House of Highlights before moving to ESPN, was the most-watched U.S.-based YouTube Shorts hub this week. Raja and his crew really dunked on the competition.
LankyBox rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. With its combination of long-form and short-form content, the culture and entertainment hub registered 255.8 million weekly views and moved up six spots.
The Minecraft star Technoblade passed away last week after being diagnosed with cancer a year prior, but as his fans like to say, Technoblade never dies.
In the wake of his passing, his YouTube channel has surged. Though it was already popular to begin with, it has now reached our U.S. Top 50, topping out in the #44 spot. For the week, Technoblade received 59.4 million weekly views, as his friends, followers, and colleagues gathered in his comment sections to say their farewells.
The video announcing the creator’s death has continued to trend since it was uploaded at the start of July. To date, “so long, nerds” has received more than 70 million total views, to go along with 7.8 million likes and 1.3 million comments. We cannot count the exact number of tears that have been spilled as a result of this video, but that number is undoubtedly high.
Though Technoblade’s YouTube channel has become a gathering place for those who wish to celebrate him, his death has resulted in activity across YouTube. If you’d like to do your part to honor the Minecraft stars legacy, you can donate to the Sarcoma Foundation of America.
This week, there are 21 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
