Lindsay Lohan’s loss of 90 days of freedom was TMZ.com‘s gain, as the site reached its record for live-stream delivery Tuesday, with nearly 2.3 million viewers of its feed of Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Marsha Revel sentencing Lohan to 90 days in prison and 90 days in an in-patient rehab program after multiple drunken-driving incidents, Broadcasting & Cable reported.

Lohan topped Lohan on TMZ’s list, as its previous record of 845,000 streaming views was set during one of her hearings May 24, according to B&C.

TMZ executive producer Harvey Levin told B&C:

The interesting thing is that people are typically on the site from five to seven minutes at a time, but (Tuesday) they were on the site for 16.3 minutes. People could literally not take their eyes off this. It was one of the most compelling court hearings I’ve ever seen.
