The #1 channel in the chart more than doubled that 300-million-view benchmark. It maintained its U.S. Top 50 lead by improving on last week’s chart-topping performance.
Make it two #1 finishes in a row for Toys and Colors. The family-friendly channel appeals to its base by offering early education content that is both valuable and enjoyable for young viewers. Over our latest seven-day measurement period, Toys and Colors snagged 650.8 million weekly views, which was a 4% bump over its previous weekly total. The all-ages hub also has a chance to reach a bigger milestone by the end of the year. If it keeps up its current pace, it could reach 50 million subscribers in December.
MrBeast is the other U.S.-based channel that posted at least 500 million YouTube views in the latest chart. Jimmy Donaldson continues to entertain his 210 million subscribers with high-concept videos that feature dazzling production values. His most recent release, in which he travels to Africa to build wells, has received a mixed response. But there’s no question about MrBeast’s audience: He has the largest subscriber base of any individual creator, and he scored 520.5 million weekly views after publishing his well-building video.
Another world-beating creator is right behind MrBeast in the U.S. Top 50. Alan Chikin Chow has become a familiar face on YouTube Shorts; he’s been active since the format’s inception. By concocting tightly-composed pieces of short-form comedy, Chow picked up 391 million weekly views. That was good for a 12% week-over-week increase, but Chow couldn’t gain any ground in the U.S. Top 50. Because the channels in front of him also increased their traffic, Chow is still ranked #3 in our all-American ranking.
Justin Flom made it three straight individual creators in the U.S. Top 50. The magician pulled off a neat trick during the week that was. He rode a 40% week-over-week viewership bump, which pushed him from seventh place up to fourth. Flom, a former #1 finisher in this chart, is nearing 15 billion lifetime YouTube views and 15 million subscribers. His weekly viewership sum topped out at 386.5 million weekly views.
Vlad and Niki rounded out this week’s U.S. top five. The family vlog continued to earn its Chart Topper status by picking up 323.4 million weekly views.
On September 9, 2013, Zach King launched his first channel on the since-defunct video service Vine. King, a special effects wizard with a knack for comedy, ranked among Vine’s most popular creators throughout the app’s heyday. A decade later, he’s still on top of the short-form world, and his popularity only seems to be growing.
King’s primary YouTube channel has become a mainstay in our Tubefilter charts, especially since the advent of the YouTube Shorts format. In our most-recent U.S. Top 50, however, King is represented twice. His main channel is in 39th place with 102 million weekly views.
Eight places later, King appears again. The Oregon-born creator has split some of his short-form work onto a separate channel called Zach King Shorts. That hub offers compilations of King’s greatest hits as well as some individual uploads that showcase his trademark special effects wizardry. There’s also some behind-the-scenes content that pulls back the curtain to show how Zach King videos are made.
King’s Shorts-themed hub reached a record-high viewership sum in November. It snagged 96.8 million weekly views, which powered it to a 47th-place finish in the U.S. Top 50. King’s secondary YouTube channel now counts more than six billion lifetime views.
Ten years after he first became a Vine sensation, King is showing that he has remarkable longevity in the vertical video world. It’s hard to stay relevant in the ever-changing world of YouTube Shorts, but veterans like King are finding ways to generate long-term impact.
This week, there are 36 YouTube Shorts channels in the U.S. Top 50.
