TMZ.com set a record on the site for its largest number of live streams with the coverage of Lindsay Lohan’s court sentencing on Tuesday, July 7, 2010, when the star broke into tears and was ordered to jail for 90 days in jail, reports B&C.
Almost 2.3 million people watched TMZ.com’s live stream of the court date, dwarfing its previous record for a live-streaming event, when 845,000 people watched a previous Lohan court date on May 24, the story says.
"The interesting thing is that people are typically on the site from five to seven minutes at a time, but yesterday they were on the site for 16.3 minutes," said TMZ Executive Producer Harvey Levin. "People could literally not take their eyes off this. It was one of the most compelling court hearings I’ve ever seen."
