Several shows have an empty runtime on both api:
- GoT (121361)
- This Is Us (311714)

A few other series I checked seem to be fine, so it's not all of them.

I've tracked down the cause of this issue and have an updated query our API developer will roll out shortly.

Runtime is deployed and tests correctly. We now cache 24 hours per endpoint per API key, so some users might not see the runtime exposed right away. This should be fully resolved over the next 20ish hours. Thank you for reporting!

The runtimes for the mentioned shows seem to be back, but the values seem to be off:
GoT: 61 minutes
This Is Us: 41 minutes
The Expanse: 40 minutes

Take The Expanse:
44 minutes (13 episodes)
43 minutes (13 episodes)
42 minutes (9 episodes)
49 minutes (3 episodes)
46 minutes (2 episodes)
41 minutes (2 episodes)
53 minutes (1 episode)
40 minutes (1 episode)
45 minutes (1 episode)
48 minutes (1 episode)
unspecified (35 specials)

The most common runtime is 44 minutes, the last one is 49 minutes, the average is 44 minutes, median is 43 minutes.

Where does the 40 min come from?
I'm happy we got something back, but there might be a bug there.

PS: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=64762 still exists, which returns 2 minutes coz there a ton of 2 min specials.
