Hello to all,

I just finished to watch the 3rd season and I was checking the runtime episodes. Well, I noticed that the runtime of every episodes are 1 minute more than the real runtime. For example the 1st episode has 37 minutes runtime, on TMDB is 38. The 2nd one is 34, but it is 33 instead.

I saw these values from HULU and they include both starting FX logo effects, the parental advisory and the end credits.

So I was wondering which is the source from where the current runtimes was taken. I tried to fix it, but the 3rd season is locked.

What is the exact runtime of the episodes ?

  • 37 minutes and a few seconds ?
  • or between 36 and 37 minutes ?

As example taking the first episode, it's 36 minutes and 52 seconds.

The runtimes were taken from the FXNOW website, which has a few extra seconds at the beginning of every episode where an announcer says both the name of the show and the episode certification (e.g. TV-MA LSV). The announcer saying the name of the show is not present on Hulu and the certification screen is shorter on Hulu than on FXNOW.


I re-open this discussion in order to know if you have the chance to check and in case fix the runtime for season 1 and 2. Effectively it is correct to refer to the original broadcast network FX rather than Hulu.

Since I live outside US, I have only the Hulu episodes. Due to that, I'm afraid that I modified the episodes runtimes of the first two seasons, and maybe the previous values were correct.

I'm sorry and I'd be grateful if you could fix them.

Do you think also to update 4th season?

I try to ask again: do you have a way to discover all the FX runtimes for 1st and 2nd season?

I used archives of the show's website from 2016 and 2018 on the Wayback Machine that had links to the episode pages to verify the runtimes.

The episode pages had the exact runtimes in minutes and seconds so the episode runtimes for seasons 1 and 2 have been updated. Most of Season 2 was good but all of Season 1 needed to be rounded up by 1 minute.
