Kid-friendly channels almost always claim the top five spots in our U.S. Top 50. This week, however, there are a pair of exceptions.

Family content is still thriving, but so are comedy and sports creators who make their living on YouTube Shorts.
CoComelon – Nursery Rhymes made a triumphant return to the front of our Global Top 50 this week. By definition, that means the California-based channel also beat out its stateside competition. CoComelon collected 611.4 million weekly views to maintain its lead in the U.S. Top 50. Don’t be surprised if it has 150 million subscribers and close to 150 billion lifetime views by the end of the year.
The runner-up in this week’s U.S. Top 50 moved up two spots to reach the #2 position. Vlad and Niki is one of three multilingual family vlogs that typically lands in the top five of our star-spangled ranking. It was able to beat out the other two members of that group by accruing 367.2 million weekly views during the second full week of October. Since many channels lost viewership week-over-week, that number went a long way.
The next channel in the U.S. Top 50 is the highest-ranking entrant whose videos appear primarily on YouTube Shorts. Alan Chikin Chow was a big name on TikTok before YouTube’s competing platform even existed, but he’s now ascended to a new level of internet fame. The comedian got 326.5 million views during the week that was, and that allowed him to hang onto the #3 spot in our all-American ranking. Not bad for a guy who was barely on YouTube a couple years ago.
Another relatively new channel, LeoNata Family, posted a fourth-place finish in our U.S. Top 50. For most creators, that would be an incredible achievement, but since LeoNata finished second in this chart a week ago, its latest performance is a bit of a disappointment. The all-ages hub still received 319.9 million weekly views, so that’s nothing to sniff at, even if it represents a week-over-week dip.
House of Highlights rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The basketball-based hub is getting ready for the NBA season by pulling in 266.7 million weekly views.
Last week, I discussed LankyBox World, which is giving U.S. Top 50 stalwart LankyBox multiple entries in our American chart. However, there’s another Top 50 entrant with ties to one of the biggest U.S.-based channels in YouTube history.
Kids Diana Show often reaches the top five alongside other family vlogs such as Like Nastya and Vlad and Niki. This week, Diana’s primary channel fell all the way down to 17th, but at the same time, one of her other hubs made a strong forward push.
Diana and Roma EN is the primarily English-language base for the Kids Diana brand. Though the family behind the Diana videos has connections to Ukraine, Florida, and Dubai, it is able to target speakers of individual languages by spreading itself across a multilingual network of YouTube channels.
So what are eight-year-old Diana and her brother Roma up to in their English-language videos? They’re pretty typical kids, to be honest. They like going to the beach, eating chocolate, and (of course) exploring the Disney canon. This Frozen-forward clip has pulled in more than 130 million views.
Diana and Roma EN just had one of its best weeks ever on YouTube. Its videos received 94.6 million weekly views, which was good for a 91% week-over-week traffic increase. That pushed the hub up from 97th place a week ago to the 49th spot in our U.S. Top 50. It’s all in a day’s work for these two globetrotting youngsters.
This week, there are 32 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
