A hilarious Shorts hub is gaining group on the chart’s leader. Meanwhile, further down the ranking, a few channels are finding that it takes two to tango.
Last week, Cocomelon – Nursery Rhymes received twice as many views as any other channel based in the U.S. The Moonbug-owned purveyor of kid-friendly fare remains #1 in the U.S. Top 50, though its declining viewership has blunted its dominance a bit. Cocomelon lost 18% of its viewership week-over-week, which left it with 645.4 million weekly views. That’s enough traffic to hang onto the #1 spots in our Global and U.S. rankings, but Cocomelon might not hold that distinction much longer.
This week, Alan Chikin Chow came the closest to catching Cocomelon in the U.S. Top 50. The California-based creator, who generates laughs with his short-form comedy videos, is ahead of all the other U.S.-based Shorts channels in our chart. Chow collected 441.3 million weekly views, which pushed him all the way up to second place. Chow is reaching many milestones on YouTube. Among other achievements, he is about to secure his 20-millionth subscriber.
Kids Diana Show is the next channel up in the U.S. Top 50. The channel led by eight-year-old Diana and her two brothers has become a mainstay in our American rankings, and that trend has continued into March. Kids Diana Show picked up 336.4 million weekly views to improve its chart position by one spot. This will be a big month for Diana — it will end with the Ukrainian-born starlet celebrating her ninth birthday.
YoesIan claimed the #4 spot in this week’s U.S. Top 50. Ian, who is often accompanied by a reaper-like monster in his vertical videos, kicked off March with a tremendous burst of viewership. He claimed 292.8 million weekly views to move up 15 spots in our star-spangled ranking. Among U.S.-based Shorts channels, only Alan Chikin Chow placed higher.
Vlad and Niki rounds out this week’s U.S. top five. The Floridian family vlog, which is piloted by its two titular kids, received 259.3 million views during the week that was.
We’ve highlighted our fair share of families in this space over the year. For our latest feature, its time for the likes of Matt & Abby to move over, because they must make room for another couple in the U.S. Top 50. Specifically, it’s time to talk about the Pink Shirt Couple.
The name of their channel is quite literal. As they explain on the About page of their YouTube channel, they wear the same outfits every single day. That sounds like a lot of coordination (and a lot of laundry).
In recent months, the two members of the Pink Shirt Couple are finding that it pays to be consistent. Their signature getup has made them recognizable figures on YouTube Shorts, where they brought their videos after breaking out on TikTok. After reaching an all-time high of 13th place in the U.S. Top 50 a week ago, Pink Shirt Couple ranked 16th in the chart at the start of March. With 188 million weekly views, the pastel-clad partners closed in on two billion lifetime YouTube views.
But this couple offers more than just synchronized outfits. In their most-watched Short, which has more than 106 million total views, they bring fake snow all the way to Minnesota. When you watch this video, you can tell that the Pink Shirt Couple approaches its bits with extreme dedication.
More excitement is on the way. With another good week, Pink Shirt Couple could eclipse seven million subscribers on YouTube.
This week, there are 34 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
