YouTube Vets Rule Comedy Week FineBros, Ryan Higa, Lonely Island Score Big View Numbers

Reggie Watts

Last week YouTube hosted its first Comedy Week, an experimental programming stunt of sorts. And while it's hard to say if there were any smash hits, the platform proved to be a hotbed of unique comedy talent with huge followings. And perhaps not surprisingly, it was the veteran YouTubers who scored the biggest view numbers. Ryan Higa, the Fine Bros. and Lonely Island all cracked the top ten (though Sarah Silverman closed strong). And watch out for ConvosWith2YrOld, a new entry that generated nearly 3 million views in just a week.

Here's the full list of leaders, courtesy of Visible Measures.
