Scroll down for this week’s Tubefilter Chart.
It was a fairly standard week in our U.S. Top 50, though there was a surprise or two.

Four of the five channels that led last week’s American ranking also found themselves in the top five this week. The only newcomer to the chart’s upper tier is a creator who is demonstrating the power of YouTube Shorts.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes is on track to have a perfect month in the U.S. Top 50. The California-based channel has led three straight iterations of our star-spangled ranking, and if it continues that performance next week, it will spend the entire month of August in first place. Its latest chart-leading totals include 565 million weekly views and an impressive subscriber count of 141 million.
The only other channel in the U.S. Top 50 to get at least 500 million views this week is LeoNata Family. With all-ages micro-video clips, LeoNata continues to make a living on YouTube Shorts. In our latest count, the ascendant channel added 514.5 million weekly views. And after having virtually zero subscribers a year ago, LeoNata now has nearly ten million of them.
The surprise I mentioned up top came in the #3 slot. That position was occupied by a YouTube Shorts creator who has made many appearances in the U.S. Top 50 but has not cracked the top five until now. Alan Chikin Chow, who satirizes topics like cryptocurrency and fanfiction in some of his most popular videos, is peaking on YouTube. He got 386.5 million weekly views, much of which was likely driven by his top clips. Six of his YouTube videos have received at least 250 million views.
Last week’s U.S. #3, Kids Diana Show, fell back to fourth place after being supplanted by Alan Chikin Chow. The family vlog, a mainstay in both our global and American rankings, earned 342.8 million weekly views during the third week of August. The more exciting Kids Diana news concerns its subscriber count, which has now surpassed 100 million.
Like Nastya (which is also closing in on 100 million subscribers) completed this week’s global top five. The kid-friendly channel snapped up 317.8 million weekly views.
Thanks to Dylan Anderson, the “best stories on the internet” now have a dedicated home.
That’s how Anderson describes his videos, which often feature touching moments and upbeat narration. At the time of this post, there are close to 300 YouTube Shorts videos within Anderson’s YouTube library, and about 200 of them have received more than 100 million views.
How does Anderson have such a high success rate on his YouTube Shorts? Like many other creators on the platform, he is aware of well-performing genres. His top videos frequently mix and match dependable categories, which expands their reach. Both pranksters and fans of heartwarming videos can find something to enjoy in Anderson’s most-watched YouTube upload.
This week was a particularly strong one for the American creator. He received 140.1 million weekly views and increased his viewership by 66% week-over-week. That allowed him to jump up 23 spots and reach 34th place in the U.S. Top 50.
Oh, and the week before that, he got his two-billionth view on YouTube. All in all, Anderson is having himself a pretty good August.
This week, there are 29 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
