The leader of our all-American ranking is far ahead of the rest of the field. Meanwhile, the channels jostling for position below it get most of their viewership on YouTube Shorts.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes is looking to spend all of November at the front of our U.S. Top 50. The California-based creator of animated nursery rhymes got 516.1 million views during the third week of the 11th month. It was another one of those weeks where the difference between Cocomelon and the next-most watched U.S.-based channel was massive. If the gap between #1 and #2 was its own channel, it would rank 34th in the U.S. Top 50.
Even though Cocomelon is a clear leader in the U.S. Top 50, the American runner-up also had a good week. Kids Diana Show gained runner-up status after finishing fourth in this ranking a week ago. The family vlog (which, like many exemplars of its category, has Slavic roots) got 396 million weekly views. Diana’s secondary English-language channel also made the U.S. Top 50, coming in at 27th.
The #3 channel in the U.S. Top 50 has risen dramatically since it first cracked the ranking a couple of weeks ago. Justin Flom is not the only magician who makes videos on TikTok and YouTube Shorts, but he’s been able to summon the sorcery he needs to levitate his way up the charts. Third place is his all-time best finish, and given the viewership he receives, he could stick around the U.S. chart’s top tier. He got 321.9 million views during the week that was.
D Billions came in fourth in the U.S. Top 50. The kid-friendly channel, known for its colorful videos and its percussive songs, claimed 240.7 million weekly views to improve its chart position by four spots. D Billions has been in and out of our U.S. top five for a while, but is still going strong. It now has more than 25 billion lifetime views in all.
Dylan Anderson rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The short-form creator collected 239.3 million weekly views, putting him just behind D Billions.
I’m not one for fussy food preparations, but if you’re entertaining a large group, you may want to serve a fruit plate filled with eclectic shapes and designs. If that’s your goal, you’ll want to check out Fruit Decorations, a YouTube Shorts channel that just made a big move in the U.S. Top 50.
Some channels obfuscate the true nature of their videos behind keyword-laden titles, but Fruit Decorations offers exactly the sort of content its name implies. All of its most-watched Shorts have the same title: “How to Carve Fruit Very Fast and Beauty.” Grammar issues aside, that moniker serves as a pretty good description for the star-shaped apple that appears in the top-viewed Fruit Decorations Short.
Mesmerizing videos like that one have gotten Fruit Decorations off to a good start on YouTube Shorts. The channel only has 388.6 million lifetime views, but 125.8 million of those views came during the last week. That surge put Fruit Decorations in 31st place in the U.S. Top 50, right between chart stalwarts Marta & Rustam and WWE.
Between Fruit Decorations and Amaury Guichon, there’s a clear fancy food trend emerging on TikTok and YouTube Shorts. The designs are fun, but I’ll still take my fruit whole, thank you very much.
This week, there are 34 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
