This week, there was a traffic jam at the front of our Global Top 50. The #1 and #2 channels in the chart are neck and neck, and #3 isn’t too far behind them.

The other channels in the world haven’t managed quite as much viewership, but there were still some surprises in the most recent ranking.
T-Series is still leading the Global Top 50, but the margin between the top two channels is much more minute than it was a week ago. The Indian record label lost 21% of its viewership week-over-week to end up with 516.3 million weekly views. It now has more than 207 billion lifetime views on YouTube, and while MrBeast may be the platform’s most-subscribed individual, T-Series is still the overall subscriber leader.
Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes is hot on T-Series’ heels. The gap between #1 and #2 in the Global Top 50 is just 167,000 views. Cocomelon was able to reestablish itself as the worldwide runner-up after securing 516.1 million weekly views. Had the American family channel managed the same viewership as last week, it would have passed T-Series and regained the top spot in the global ranking.
SET India isn’t far behind the two leaders of the Global Top 50. The South Asian entertainment hub has been ensconced in third place throughout November, and that trend continued this week. With 490.9 million weekly views, the Sony-owned channel opened up a gap of nearly 100 million views over the fourth-place channel.
That fourth-place finisher is Kids Diana Show. The family vlog, which has its roots in Ukraine, just put together its best week so far this month. With 396 million views, Diana and her family improved their chart position by three places. The 16% week-over-week bump pushed Kids Diana Show ahead of all other U.S.-based channels not named Cocomelon.
Hasan Tarhan rounds out this week’s global top five. The Turkish creator earned 366.2 million weekly views and improved his Global Top 50 position by three places as well.
What is the most ridiculous way you’ve ever cheated during a school test? I once hid some notes in my sleeve and pretended to be really tired, but that amateurish method pales in comparison to the methods displayed on the SrJinxed channel. The Korean creator’s most-watched YouTube Shorts clips feature students and their sophisticated, collaborative cheating schemes. Or, as SrJinxed calls it, “teamwork.”
That video, which has received more than 185 million views, is the most-watched SrJinxed Short. Other micro-video clips uploaded by the creator depict the pop culture and television shows of South Korea. That includes K-pop, of course.
Perhaps Blackpink’s rabid fanbase played a big role in pushing SrJinxed into the Global Top 50. The short-form channel got 310.6 million views during the third week of November. That was about 20% of the channel’s all-time traffic on YouTube, and as a result, SrJinxed vaulted all the way to 8th place in the Global Top 50.
For what is essentially a content aggregator, this channel is doing great. As long as there’s behind-the-scenes K-pop content to share, SrJinxed will be there.
Here’s a breakdown of the Top 50 Most Viewed channels this week in terms of their countries of origin:
- United States: 18 channels in the Top 50.
- India: 15 channels in the Top 50.
- Turkey and Vietnam: 3 channels in the Top 50.
- Pakistan and South Korea: 2 channels in the Top 50.
- Germany, Iraq, Japan, Latvia, Mexico, Russia, and United Kingdom: 1 channel each in the Top 50.
This week, 27 channels in the Top 50 are primarily active on YouTube Shorts.
