It could just be a general trend that people seem to prefer raocow's Mario videos of his non-Mario videos (since that's where he excels). Could also be a time-of-day thing too, as his morning videos tend to have almost double the views that his evening videos do.
It actually does seem to be the case. HLD started with 3400 views on the first video then dropped to half that in the second. After that it generally decreased to as low as about a thousand with the finale having ~360 more views than the second to last video. From what I saw though the vast majority of those views were within the first 24-36 hours. Dust's first episode was only 2600 views and has steadily dropped since then to the point where the video before last still (edit: Actually the video before that
. Episode 8 from two days ago) isn't even above 1000 views. Admittedly I don't pay an enormous amount of attention to raocow's video views for the most part but having a video under a thousand views after two days definitely stands out as unusual.
Incidentally the VLDC9 video just passed the last Dust video shortly before I went to check exact numbers for this post. It definitely usually takes a fair bit longer than 5 hours for that to happen. That usually happens closer to the time the next video for the B-side is uploaded from what I've seen.

Like I'm serious here, I WILL try my best to be better at this. It's a blind spot for me and it's something I want to be better at. Just... don't expect me to change over night, but I'm giving my best shot.
Thanks for listening to my probably too harsh and rambly complaints.
