Read on to learn about all the channels that moved into and out of the top five this week.
Congratulations to Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes, which has unseated last week’s leader to claim the top spot in our worldwide ranking. The American producer of animated jingles was just outside of pole position seven days ago, and that was before it increased its viewership by 39% week-over-week. With 717.4 million weekly views, Cocomelon is well ahead of the field. Even if you cut its viewership in half, it would rank in the global top five.
As per usual, T-Series only slid one spot after dropping from the top position in the Global Top 50. A runner-up finish represents a down week for the Indian record label, even though it increased its viewership by 18% week-over-week. In total, T-Series had 612.2 million weekly views and now has more than 208 billion views all-time on YouTube.
In the next position, threes are wild: The #3 channel in the Global Top 50 has ranked third for three straight weeks. SET India continues to reach millions of consumers in South Asia by delivering TV content on YouTube. The Indian entertainment destination recorded 475.1 million weekly views.
Justin Flom continues to work his magic on YouTube Shorts. The impresario fell out of the global top five last week, but he roared back into the ranking by picking up 381 million weekly views. The short-form creator, also known for his TikTok videos, reached #4 in the world. That’s the sort of uptick you can generate if you’re able to increase your viewership by 18%, as Flom did this week.
Beter Böcük rounds out this week’s global top five. The vertical video hub had a big bump of its own — it was +24% week-over-week — which propelled it to a total of 354.8 million weekly views.
Surprise! There’s another cat channel with a presence in the Global Top 50. It’s called mmeowmmia, and after impressing viewers on TikTok, it is scratching and clawing its way up the YouTube Shorts ladder.
Mia, the cat named in the channel’s title, is responsible for only 50% of the feline fun mmeowmmia contains. The other kitty featured on the channel is Jerrie. Together, these adorable co-stars navigate puzzles and challenges, and they each have their own strategies for negotiating the gauntlets in front of them. Jerrie is more likely to follow the rules, while Mia finds solutions that are outside the box (or “over the wall,” if you will).
That video, which 140 million total views, is a reminder of just how popular cat content can be on the internet. During our most recent seven-day measurement period, mmeowmmia collected 259.5 million weekly views. That put it in 15th place in our Global Top 50, and it was the highest-ranking channel among all hubs based in the United Kingdom.
That’s one of the fastest starts we’ve ever seen on YouTube Shorts. Before this week, mmeowmmia had less than 100 million lifetime views on YouTube. So while the titular cat squeezes through shrinking passages, the channel’s profile is only increasing in size.
Here’s a breakdown of the Top 50 Most Viewed channels this week in terms of their countries of origin:
- United States: 21 channels in the Top 50.
- India: 10 channels in the Top 50.
- Turkey: 3 channels in the Top 50.
- Japan, Pakistan, South Korea, United Kingdom, and Vietnam: 2 channels in the Top 50.
- Cyprus, Latvia, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Russia, and Ukraine: 1 channel each in the Top 50.
This week, 25 channels in the Top 50 are primarily active on YouTube Shorts.
