Although the top half of the US Top 50 is filled with kid-friendly channels, none of them could match the prowess of the eight-year-old star at the top of the charts.


Like Nastya is now third in our Global Top 50 after being at the top of that ranking two weeks ago, but the Florida-based channel hasn’t given up its US Top 50 throne. With 549.8 million weekly views, Nastya and her family earned another top spot in our US rankings. Next week, Nastya’s reign could come to an end, but even if it doesn’t, the child star is all but guaranteed to receive the 79 millionth lifetime view on her main YouTube hub.

The channel that could potentially catch Like Nastya next week is Cocomelon – nursery rhymes. Moonbug-Owned Children’s Animation Producer Hooked 527.5 million views during the week that was. That total brought it a stone’s throw from the No. 1 spot on the US Top 50, but for now, the California-based chain will have to settle for second place. It still has more lifetime views than any other US-based channel, with 131.1 billion of them.

Another family vlog, Diana show for children, made a big push higher this week. The home of Diana, her parents and her brother Roma has increased its audience by 30% week after week and ended up 443.6 million weekly views. Nonetheless, the Florida-based chain couldn’t improve on the third-place finish it earned last week. The competition is simply fierce.

Fourth place in this week’s US Top 50 went to LankyBox. The gaming center relied on its usual suspects – Minecraft, Roblox, Poppy Playtimeetc – because he added another 279.6 million weekly views to its total lifetime. If LankyBox had received 10 million less views, it would have dropped to ninth place in our US rankings. So there’s your weekly reminder that every view counts.

The channel that rounds out this week’s US top five is the YouTube Shorts hub. LeoNata family. by securing 277.9 million weekly viewsLeoNata managed to reach the same position in the chart where it ended up last week.

Top Winners

On YouTube, a mix of long, short and live content becomes a powerful combination for creators. A videographer who exemplifies this strategy is surfboya player whose YouTube channel Shorts reached our Top 50 in the United States last week.

On his main channel, Surfnboy highlights his adventures in the world of mobile gaming. He likes to play Fortnite and is a member of Misifts Gaming.

His gaming content, however, receives far less traffic than his YouTube Shorts clips. Like MrBeast, Surfnboy likes to supplement his long adventures with reaction videos. He’s posting this comment in small chunks, and the views are pouring in. One genre he likes to react to is optical illusion videos. This “craziest illusions” compilation earned Surfnboy more than 123 million views all alone.

Boosted by videos like this, Surfnboy has come all the way to 37th place in our US Top 50. Her shorts hub has taken over 107 million weekly views, which placed him in the top 25 US-based Shorts YouTube channel. For the energetic young creator, this type of audience seems like an illusion in itself: film yourself reacting to various videos and watch your traffic increase by 42% week after week. How it works? Only the algorithm knows for sure.

Channel distribution

This week there is 27 YouTube short film channels in the US Top 50.
