Possible Explanation: Express campaign against “premier” and its variants escalates today. A couple of handy rules:
- premier: first in importance (adj.); chief official (n.)
- premiere: a first performance, broadcast, etc. (n.); to exhibit or broadcast for the first time (vt.)
And they totally would have gotten it right today, except:
- “i” before “e,” except after “c”
Even better is the explanation of how a television series is broadcastapparently TBS will show The Office in sequence, beginning with the first two episodes, then following with subsequent eps. Thanks, Express!
