YouTube reports record views for the second presidential debate, but fewer live viewers

[YouTube] says that the debate’s live stream and on-demand videos surrounding it drew over 124 million views since Sunday – a figure which not only tops the first debate metrics by 40%, but also tops the 2012 viewership numbers, and the number of traditional TV viewers who tuned into to watch the debate live on television. […] with the combination of the live viewership and video-on-demand numbers, YouTube says total debate viewership increased by 40% from the first debate to the second one. The former saw 88 million combined views, compared with the 124 million this time around, over the same time frame. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch
