The top five channels aired in the same order as last week, with the Indian label needing no introduction in first place.


If by any chance you need an introduction, I’m talking about T-series. The Indian channel, which held the top spot in this ranking for all but two weeks of 2022, maintained that position in the second week of February. During this period, he resumed 877.3 million weekly viewsit therefore remains within earshot of the threshold of one billion views per week.

Another Indian channel, SET India, ran just behind T-Series in second place. With his 691.6 million weekly views, the television-focused hub has moved closer to its compatriot. SET India also continues to recruit subscribers; he now has 127 million of them, and it could reach 150 million before the end of 2022.

The highest-ranked US channel in this area and most others Tubular filter graphics is Cocomelon – nursery rhymes. The California-based animation and jingle producer scored another big week, scoring 650.2 million weekly views during our last measurement period. Cocomelon may be second only to SET India in terms of weekly viewership, but it is just ahead in terms of subscribers, with 129 million.

For the second week in a row, fourth place in our Global Top 50 goes to Diana show for children. The American channel, on which Diana and her brother Roma play and tell stories, held its place in the ranking thanks to its 457.6 million weekly views. The Diana children have also skyrocketed 90 million subscribers this week.

Once again, Sony SA completes our world top five. The Indian channel, which has the same owner as SET India, has used its arsenal of television content to accumulate 449.4 million weekly views.

Top Winners

Over the years, identical triplets Nika, Natalie and Nicole Taylor have played thousands of shows as a country music trio. The sisters all have flamboyant red hair, so they call their act Taylor Red.

Now the triplets are embarking on a new profession: short video. On TikTok, Taylor Red TV reaches over 10 million subscribers, and its YouTube analog Shorts has an equally massive following.

This week, Taylor Red TV reached 12th place in our Global Top 50, after occupying the 32nd place a week ago. The sisters’ YouTube collection got 298.9 million weekly views during the second week of February, which is 56% more audience than the hub’s previous seven-day total.

As with so many other Shorts YouTube channels, Taylor Red TV has a lot of viewers with some…strange content. The majority of popular videos on the channel have the title “wait for it”, although I’m not sure exactly what we’re supposed to be waiting for. Most of these clips have conclusive endings.

What interests me most about Taylor Red TV is when the channel started appearing in our Global Top 50. She appeared last November, around the time Taylor Swift’s version of Red tap YouTube.

It would be pure speculation to suggest that the rising tide of Red (Taylor’s version) raised this other American musical act, but if that’s not what happened, it’s an interesting coincidence. For what it’s worth, I’m not recommended any videos from Taylor Red TV when watching clips from Redbut I may be outside the target demographic here.
