All of the top five channels in the chart saw at least a 20% increase in viewership week-over-week. And all channels in the US ranking achieved at least 82 million views during the week.


Cocomelon – nursery rhymes received a great Christmas present this week: it retained the number one spot in our Top 50 in the United States. The California-based content provider maintained its status as the most-watched YouTube channel in the United States by carrying 748.5 million weekly views. Only three other US-based chains managed to get even half the traffic as Cocomelon during our last measurement period.

The other US-based channel to hit the 500 million-view mark this week is Like Nastya. The Florida vlog is perhaps the most notable family channel on YouTube, with its seven-year-old star emerging as a powerhouse in the world of children’s content. For seven days, Nastya and co. picked up 690.6 million weekly views.

The highest ranked Shorts YouTube channel in our latest US Top 50 is Marta and Rustam. The short-form hub, formerly known as Khamitovy, is the home of its titular couple, who prank each other and complete challenges together. The notched pair 440.8 million weekly views during the last full week of December.

Another YouTube Shorts channel is hot on the heels of Marta and Rustam. SMOL, which proliferates all manner of micro-videos via YouTube competitor TikTok, finished fourth in our most recent US Top 50. Around Christmas, he added 375.9 million weekly views to its total lifetime.

Toys and colors completes the US top five this week. The kid-friendly channel improved its ranking by three places after receiving 341.4 million weekly views.

Top Winners

In No coming home, the last chapter of the Spider Man film series, an anomaly in the multiverse causes heroes and villains from previous Spider Man titles to return to theaters. This means fans will be eager to rediscover the memorable moments of these characters’ first on-screen appearances in the franchise. And that presents an opportunity for channels like TopMovieClips.

As the name suggests, TopMovieClips shares scenes from popular movies, especially those from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the days following the release of No coming home, TopMovieClips uploaded several videos featuring former Spider Man villains Doc Ock, Electro and the Green Goblin – all of whom return in the new feature. These clips have already been viewed millions of times. One of Alfred Molina’s best Doc Ock scenes of 2004 Spiderman 2 hung 8.4 million views alone.

Buoyed by all that web content, TopMovieClips had a big week, working their way to 45th place in our US top 50. 91 million weekly views the string received during our last count represented a 68% increase compared to its previous total traffic. I’m glad the brains behind TopMovieClips had the good sense to upload all those years old clips at the right time.

Channel distribution
