The fantastic five has gotten more weekly views on YouTube than any other channel, and everyone in this group has been crushing it for a long time. In terms of lifetime views, they are five of the top six channels in our latest Global Top 50.


In a week where the top five is very impressive, T-series stays in a class of its own.

The Indian record label was the only channel to surpass 800 million views this week. It also topped 900 million, ending with 902.4 million weekly views. That total secured the T-Series’ second consecutive trip to the top of our Global Top 50.

Cocomelon – nursery rhymes took second place this week, meaning she and the T-series ran one to two, in some order, in each World Top 50 of 2022 rankings. The American host’s latest seven-day sum exceeded at 794.1 million weekly viewswhat was 8% more traffic than what it recorded in our previous table.

Like T-Series and Cocomelon, the next two chains in our global ranking maintained the positions they achieved a week ago. SET Indiaa Sony-owned hub that streams TV content to an audience of 125 million subscribersretained third place by scoring 697.4 million weekly views. Of the channels that cracked our latest Global Top 50, SET India is third in weekly and lifetime views; it trails T-Series and Cocomelon in both categories.

Diana show for children received a boost this week, increasing its viewership by 13% week after week. This rise has helped the Florida-based family vlog hold its own against the competition; he ranked fourth in the world for the second straight week. Diana’s YouTube home stayed above the 500 million views threshold and finally registered 593 million weekly views.

SET India is not the only Sony-owned channel in our global top five, as Sony SA completed this rarefied group. For seven days, the channel adjacent to the television picked up 487.9 million weekly views.

Top Winners

There was an Italy-based channel in this week’s Global Top 50, and no, it’s not Khaby Lame.

PANDA BOI is the home of a globetrotting designer who was first followed on TikTok and flew the Italian tricolor on his YouTube channel Shorts. His videos, many of which use a ‘man in the street’ approach, straddle the line between authenticity and drama. Even if they are all mounted, it does not detract from the charisma of their star.

The typical PANDA BOI video looks like this: Panda makes a ridiculously unbalanced offer to a passerby. Sometimes they take the wrong side of the case for no reason. Then Panda changes the deal, which sometimes changes the passerby’s decision, and sometimes it doesn’t. It’s a weird form of dry humor that’s hard to explain, so see for yourself:

As weird as these videos are, they do wonders for the PANDA BOI. The clip embedded above has 144.5 million total viewsand he helped propel his star to a 27th spot in this week’s Global Top 50. For seven days, PANDA BOI’s YouTube operation attracted 225.3 million weekly viewswhich represents a 12% increase week over week.

Judging from the comments I’ve read, some people think the bystanders in these videos should have made different choices. Well, if that’s how you feel about PANDA BOI, all I can say is see you later, boi.
