News Bloopers Prove Popular During Quiet Holiday Week

Year-end lists dot VideoWatch series chart

Last week was a weird one, in that most of us were off on Wednesday (New Year's Day) and many people were still on vacation, or visiting families, or skiing. So it was something of an odd week for YouTube series content.

As you might have guessed, year-end compilations continued to prove popular, including this collection of news bloopers from NewsBeFunny. Other look-back-at 2013 clips that proved viral, according to the latest VideoWatch/VidIQ data, were Smosh's Worst of 2013 and The Fine Bros. Teens React to What Does 2013 Say (which itself is a Google-produced year-end compilation). 

Check out the full ranking here:

NOTE: Adweek’s VideoWatch Chart, powered by VidIQ, reveals the Top 10 Web Series Videos on YouTube every week. The chart tracks more than just pure views; VidIQ incorporates sharing data from Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, among other data sources, in an effort to measure true engagement. 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, material like clips from TV shows, movie trailers, video games and music videos are not included.
