While some people may have been investigating “Shark Week” documentaries during Stormy Daniels’ “60 Minutes” interview Sunday, others were tracking down her videos on Pornhub.com. A lot of people, actually.

According to new data provided by Pornhub, from 7-8 p.m. ET on March 25 searches containing “Stormy Daniels” were up 2,052 percent on the adult website versus the same time period the previous Sunday.

This is not the first time Daniels has seen an increase in love on Pornhub, with searches for her name spiking from 2,500 a day in January to more than 2 million searches over a five-day period earlier this month, according to the site.

The numbers have continued to jump each time Daniels made headlines. Her appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” caused an eye-popping 325 percent increase in U.S. searches and 258 percent worldwide. When Trump attorney Michael Cohen admitted he made the $130,000 payment, it caused another 250 percent spike in searches. The traffic jumped to its previous highest level — up 536 percent in the U.S. and 489 percent worldwide — on March 7, when it was reported that Daniels would be suing Trump.

Pornhub’s statisticians found similar increases in traffic for searches on both Karen McDougal and Aubrey O’Day, when news broke about their scandalous connections to the Trump administration.
