Total time this issue has been In Progress modification not working

Hello, I'm using the provided total time this issue has been In Progress groovy script.

I modified it so that it would tell me how long it was in it's initial "New" state. When I try and preview the answer, I get no answer whatsoever. The issue has been transitioned out of the status, and it was in that "New" status for about 5 days... any ideas?

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.history.ChangeItemBean
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.core.util.DateUtils
 
def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def changeHistoryManager = componentManager.getChangeHistoryManager()
 
def inProgressName = "New"
 
def rt = [0]
def changeItems = changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField(issue, "status")
changeItems.reverse().each {ChangeItemBean item ->
    item.toString == inProgressName
 
    def timeDiff = System.currentTimeMillis() - item.created.getTime()
    if (item.fromString == inProgressName) {
        rt << -timeDiff
    }
    if (item.toString == inProgressName){
        rt << timeDiff
    }
}
 
if (! changeItems) {
    rt << (System.currentTimeMillis() - issue.getCreated().getTime())
 
}
 
// doesn't show anything if less than 60 seconds
DateUtils.getDurationString(Math.round(rt.sum() / 1000))

Modified the script as such: 

import com.atlassian.jira.ComponentManager
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.history.ChangeItemBean
import com.atlassian.jira.issue.Issue
import com.atlassian.core.util.DateUtils

def componentManager = ComponentManager.getInstance()
def changeHistoryManager = componentManager.getChangeHistoryManager()

def inProgressName = "New"

def rt = [0]
def changeItems = changeHistoryManager.getChangeItemsForField(issue, "status")
changeItems.reverse().each {ChangeItemBean item ->
item.toString == inProgressName

def timeDiff = System.currentTimeMillis() - item.created.getTime()
if (item.fromString == inProgressName) {
rt << -timeDiff
}
if (item.toString == inProgressName){
rt << timeDiff
}
}

if (! changeItems) {
rt << (System.currentTimeMillis() - issue.getCreated().getTime())

}
rt << (System.currentTimeMillis() - issue.getCreated().getTime()) 
double hours = rt.sum()/1000/60/60

Adding in the 

rt << (System.currentTimeMillis() - issue.getCreated().getTime())

at the end made the "New" state finally get calculated the right way. Also, to make the field queryable (although less pretty) I kept it in number form.
