Issues with TV show rating?

Post by DevXen »

my TV script previously had $rating and that worked pretty well.

I'm guessing there was a change since the api 3.0. But {$rating} no longer works. says the expression yields empty value.
ok. so i tried {rating} and that pulls up 0.0 as a result. Actually i just looked. did thetvdb stop letting people rate the shows there?
I noticed {omdb.rating} works. but how reliable will that end up being for tv shows?

Yep, the website dropped support for ratings / votes some time ago. The field is still in the API and FileBot does make it available, but since no new data is coming in, it's relatively useless for newly added shows which end up with no ratings and no way to add ratings.

{omdb.rating} works as long as the TheTVDB record has the IMDb field set correctly. It'll work for popular shows, but probably not so much for newly added or less popular shows.
