Here’s the scoop about the channels that received the most YouTube views during the week that was:
T-Series has returned to a familiar position. The Indian record label reached the #1 spot in the Global Top 50 after outpacing all other channels with 686.1 million weekly views on YouTube. With one month to go in 2023, T-Series is approaching yet another unprecedented milestone. As long as it continues its current rate of viewership through December, it will become the first YouTube channel to reach 240 billion lifetime views. When you combine that number with a YouTube-leading 253 million subscribers, T-Series’ dominance of the Global Top 50 becomes clear.
Toys and Colors spent the previous three weeks in the #1 position in the Global Top 50, but the kid-friendly channel saw its fortunes shift during the week of November 26. Its viewership dropped by 11% week-over-week, and that dip pushed it out of the top spot in our worldwide ranking. With 617.3 million weekly views, Toys and Colors is the runner-up in the latest Global Top 50. That number may not be high enough to keep up with T-Series, but it includes enough views to bring Toys and Colors within a stone’s throw of 55 billion lifetime views.
Anaya Kandhal repeated the #3 finish she earned in this ranking a week ago. The Indian creator is a toddler who has become a Global Top 50 regular by appearing in videos alongside her parents. Kandhal may be little, but the traffic on her YouTube channel certainly is not. She’s now pulled in more than 11 billion lifetime views after adding 542.5 million weekly views during the final full week of November. Anaya is on fire — just like a burning Kandhal.
MrBeast is in fourth place in the Global Top 50. The primary hub of North Carolina-based creator Jimmy Donaldson is filled with an eclectic array of short-form quick hitters and extravagant long-form uploads. During our most recent seven-day measurement period, Donaldson reminded us that he’s a regular Chart Topper. The MrBeast channel scooped up 486.5 million weekly views, and Donaldson continued to chase T-Series’ subscriber crown. On his primary hub, he now reaches 214 million subscribers.
Filmy Suraj Actor rounded out this week’s global top five by reaching his highest-ever ranking in the chart. The Indian short-form creator counted 461 million weekly views.
The Japanese Spider-Man trend is continuing unabated on YouTube Shorts. In the Global Top 50, the latest iteration of the friendly neighborhood web-slinger is Spider Vambi. That’s the name of a channel whose host dons a familiar superhero costume and collaborates with some of Japan’s top Shorts stars.
Unlike some of the other Spider-Men who climb up our Global Top 50, this one does little to conceal his identity. You can see his face on his homepage banner and in many of his videos. Spider Vambi isn’t a masked man at all; he’s just an enterprising creator who likes teaming up with companions like Issei.
Spider Vambi’s blend of cultural awareness and high-profile collaborations led to a banner week in our Global Top 50. At the end of November, the Japanese creator reached 41st place in our global ranking by picking up 243.9 million weekly views. That figure represented a 34% week-over-week increase for a channel that came into the week with ten billion views already in its pocket.
This version of Spider-Man seems to be taking off. I’d love to see this concept developed into a feature-length project. Instead of working for J. Jonah Jameson as a newspaper photographer, Spider Vambi could find work in a social media agency. Someone get Marvel on the line — I think we’ve got something here.
Here’s a breakdown of the Top 50 Most Viewed channels this week in terms of their countries of origin:
- India: 17 channels in the Top 50.
- United States: 15 channels in the Top 50.
- Japan and Pakistan: 3 channels in the Top 50.
- Russia and South Korea: 2 channels in the Top 50.
- Belgium, Canada, El Salvador, France, Latvia, Netherlands, Ukraine, and United Arab Emirates: 1 channel each in the Top 50.
This week, 35 channels in the Top 50 are primarily active on YouTube Shorts.
