33 of the 50 channels in our US ranking derive their views from vertical videos. Read on to learn more about the long-form channels bucking this trend — and the short-form hubs that are hot on our heels.

Tops

Cocomelon – nursery rhymes continues to crush the competition on YouTube. With 497.2 million weekly views, the animation producer has managed to maintain its spot at the top of our US Top 50. As more and more children encounter the Cocomelon brand, we only expect its audience to climb even higher. Once he finishes his 32-city tour of the United States, who knows what his weekly audience will be?

Even as Cocomelon continues to rise, Diana show for children follows its rhythm. For the second week in a row, the family vlog ranked #2 in our US Top 50. This time his second total came to 468.4 million weekly views, making it one of only two US-based channels to achieve at least 400 million weekly views by early July. This strong performance will put an even bigger smile on Diana’s face.

In our latest US ranking, third place went to a channel that continues to climb the rankings. This little puff has found the perfect combination of adorable animal content and helpful cooking tips, and as a result, it continues to gain a growing following and fame across the web. During our last seven-day measurement period, That Little Puff achieved 399.8 million weekly views. This 12% increase week over week lifted top-ranked US chain Shorts two places.

LeoNata family also publishes content on YouTube Shorts, but thanks to other formats (including compilations of said Shorts), the cozy family channel has been able to grow its audience on YouTube. In our most recent tally, LeoNata rolled up 396.2 million weekly views. While that puts it second only to That Little Puff, I’m still impressed that such a craft channel managed to generate almost 13 billion lifetime views.

Like Nastya completes the US top five this week. The family vlog added 366.9 million weekly views to crack the highest tier of our US leaderboard.

Top Winners

Adam Wahidknown online as Adam Whas amassed a huge archive of content since he started uploading to his personal YouTube channel in 2015. The sketch comedian has snagged over five billion lifetime viewsmany of which come from his 7.7 million subscribers.

Since Waheed is a regular feature in our US Top 50 and has a large library to analyze, we can examine its progress to discover some basic trends active on YouTube. For starters, all of his most-watched videos are YouTube Shorts clips. Comedy is now understood as a preferred format for short video. You can fit multiple punchlines into a one-minute video, and Waheed has plenty of them.

A closer look reveals that 15 of Waheed’s 20 most-watched YouTube videos have titles that begin with “when you…” “why you…” or some variation thereof. He focuses on the title formats that attract him the most viewers, and this attention to detail helps his channel thrive. In our last US Top 50 ranking, Waheed’s YouTube hub took the 23rd placeor his 171 million weekly views put him one spot ahead of fellow short-form star Daniel LaBelle.

Two positions behind Waheed, we find the WWE. It may be time for the comedian to try wrestling.
