In March, no chain could defend its perch atop our US Top 50 graphic. Two top content destinations have come and gone as the most-watched US-based YouTube channel.

April is another story. One of those two chains eventually repeated as No. 1 in the US Top 50, and I wouldn’t be surprised if it stayed in that position for the rest of the month.

Tops

From time to time, other channels may be able to outperform Cocomelon – nursery rhymes in terms of weekly viewership, but among US content providers, the California-based animation hub is in a class of its own. It’s now been number 1 in our US Top 50 for two consecutive weeks. During our last measurement period, Cocomelon recorded 509 million weekly viewsmaking it the only US-based channel to surpass 500 million views this week.

Diana show for children moved up one spot to finish second in the United States. The titular vlog star, born in Ukraine, always wears a smile, whether she’s filming from Dubai or her family’s other base in Florida. For seven days, Diana and co. won 421.9 million weekly views; the channel is also on track to reach 100 million subscribers by the end of 2022.

In March, Like Nastya reached first place in this ranking twice. In our first US Top 50 for April, however, the family channel fell back to third place after losing 16% of its viewership week-over-week. Nevertheless, the 377.5 million weekly views As Nastya received, it remained entrenched in our US top five (and it’s just ahead of Kids Diana Show in lifetime viewership as well).

Lanky box went the other way this week, riding a 22% increase in viewership week over week to earn two places in our American Top 50. The games and entertainment channel ends just behind the three family channels with 254.8 million weekly views. This audience level has been the name of the game for LankyBox hosts Justin and Adam since they started creating YouTube Shorts content.

Vlad and Niki rounded out our US top five for the second week in a row. The Florida-based channel, run by the two titular boys, landed 238.6 million weekly views.

Top Winners

When we see gaming channels in our Top 50 rankings, they usually rack up a lot of views by sharing clips of popular titles like Minecraft and Roblox. XO Player, on the other hand, keeps it casual. His best videos are all YouTube Shorts clips that show the levels in the “endless runner” genre of mobile gaming.

Some endless runner games show small sprites running through temple or racetrack settings, but like XO player watch, there is a lot of creativity in this category these days. Sometimes the goal is to create a big raft of popsicles for hungry kids or to build the best pizza possible. Then you have Rider Girl, which is so confusing and unusual that viewers can’t look away. This video contains more than 35 million views:

Overall, XO Gamer managed to recover 69.7 million weekly views in our latest count. This 14% increase in viewership week over week propelled it from 69th place in the United States until the 48th. Not bad for a channel that only started uploading YouTube videos last year.

In my mind, there are more exciting gaming channels. But hey, if you were stuck at one of these levels, you’d love to find this channel in your YouTube Shorts feed.
