The YouTube Daily Top 20 – 12/24/14


NMR is constantly monitoring the YouTube charts, tracking what’s on the rise and who’s falling out of favor. Our Daily Top 20 gives you the 20 videos that are reigning supreme at the top of our charts so you can stay one step ahead of what’s hot.

Wednesday, December 24th 2014

Leading the Top 20 today is the trailer for the long-awaited (I guess?) Entourage movie. The bro-iest show every to bro its way across our TV screens will finally make its big screen debut in 2015 and fans are over the moon. The film will reunite the core cast for what someone in some executive meeting somewhere has definitely called “The Sex And The City movie for dudes.” Further down the charts, current hit makers The Weeknd dropped a lyric video for their latest single “Earned It” which will be featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming 50 Shades of Grey movie. Some have argued that the movie is a waste of time because the 50 Shade phenomenon has long since peaked leaving minimal demand for such a film. Those people are right, but the song is pretty chill.

Also joining the charts today, new trailers for Breaking Bad spin-off Better Call Saul and the latest season of American Idol. The Ryan Seacrest-hosted trailer reveals a major change to the Idol format and reminds us that American Idol is still a show on television. Can you believe it? I cannot!

YouTube creators have held their ground on the charts today with Corridor Digital and PBS’s It’s Ok To Be Smart both falling a few slots to the middle of the pack. They’re joined by YouTube favorites like Blood Blitz’s “Bane Cat,” who celebrates the holiday with some elaborate death traps for Santa. Closing out the charts today is that Marvel/DC movie mashup that’s been making the rounds. A crossover between the two companies’ respective cinematic universes is about as likely as a heat wave at the North Pole, but after watching this fan trailer a few dozen times we’re kind of rooting for it.
