The Fine Bros. YouTube franchise "react" films various audiences' reactions as they watch some form of pop culture. Kids React to Double Rainbow from a few years ago is a particular favorite.

This past week, the duo scored the top spot on the VideoWatch/Vid.IQ Web series chart with a clip featuring some older folks taking in some Justin Bieber and work from other pop stars. Generally, the "elders" are not impressed—particularly with Bieber's tattoos.

Also on the list, teens reacting to recently-fondled-by-Miley star Robin Thicke.

Meanwhile, love it or hate it, the phenomenon that is PewDiePie continues to percolate. The Swedish gamer accounts for four of the top 10 spots on the ranking.

NOTE: Adweek’s VideoWatch Chart, powered by Vid.IQ, reveals the Top 10 Web Series Videos on YouTube every week.

Every video is also ranked with vidIQ’s proprietary Score which helps judge the likelihood of a video being promoted in YouTube Related Videos, Search, and Recommended Videos. 

The ranking is also meant to capture 'born on the Web' YouTube content. Thus, things like clips from TV shows, movie trailers and music videos are not included.
