It was a good week in our U.S. Top 50 — at least for the channels that claimed the premier positions.

Three of the top five channels in the ranking (and six of the top ten) increased their viewership by at least 10% week-over-week. The #1 channel in the chart isn’t part of that group, though it also got more traffic than what it earned a week ago.
CoComelon – Nursery Rhymes remains far ahead of the field in the U.S. Top 50. If you were to chop the California-based hub in half, its viewership would still be big enough to rank sixth in our all-American chart. At full strength, CoComelon has a lead of about 150 million views over its red, white, and blue competition. The home of jingles and animations scooped up 573.1 million weekly views during the first full week of October.
LeoNata Family has only been on YouTube for about a year, but the short-form hub has already risen to become one of the most prominent channels in the world. After adding 423.1 million weekly views, LeoNata surpassed 16 billion lifetime views and beat out all U.S.-based channels not named CoComelon. That traffic is split between short-form family adventures and long-form compilations of those clips.
Another channel based on YouTube Shorts, Alan Chikin Chow, took third place in our Global Top 50. Chow’s singular brand of comedy made him a breakout star on TikTok, and now he’s thriving on YouTube, too. He bumped up his viewership by 24% week-over-week and moved up one spot after finishing fourth a week ago. In total, he scored 379.5 million weekly views.
Vlad and Niki also rode a double-digit viewership increase to claim a spot in the U.S. top five. The family vlog, which placed eighth a week ago, moved up to fourth after securing 377.2 million weekly views. That was 32% more views than the total Vlad and Niki posted seven days prior, and the channel ended up ahead of fellow family vlogs Like Nastya and Kids Diana Show.
That Little Puff rounds out our U.S. top five. The short-form cooking channel moved up six spots after collecting 312.7 million weekly views.
LankyBox often claims one of the top five spots in the U.S. Top 50, but this week, the gaming and entertainment channel finished just outside of that tier at #6. Further down the chart, however, the content organization run by two creators named Justin and Adam is making a big move.
Like CoComelon, LankyBox has doubled its presence in the U.S. Top 50 by launching a secondary channel. LankyBox World was inaugurated in 2019 and has since become the home of videos shots in a beloved digital world: Roblox.
Justin and Adam love to follow YouTube’s hottest trends (hence all the Roblox love), and their World is also full of short-form clips. Some of those videos have to do with Roblox, but others veer into into territory that will be familiar to non-gamers. One clip, which incorporates pranks, challenges, and comedy, hits all the popular YouTube Shorts genres. Maybe that’s why it’s earned more than 123 million views so far.
Bolstered by the consistency of its two hosts, LankyBox World reached its best-ever chart position during the first full week of October. It increased its viewership by 16% week-over-week to end up with 133 million weekly views and the 37th spot in our U.S. Top 50. LankyBox and its World aren’t the biggest one-two punch on YouTube (CoComelon and Lellobee still get more views), but Justin and Adam are using their Shorts to ensure long-term success.
This week, there are 34 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
