Premieres

This concept of a “Premiere” just because it is the first time shown on that particular network is a complete load of crock and an insult to viewers, when that program has already been shown umpteen times elsewhere.
It is becoming more and more common:-
“Death in Paradise” - “New Series” - despite the fact we’ve already seen it three times on the ABC.
“Godzilla” - Premiere on the seven network - despite the fact that we’ve seen it a dozen times on other networks.
endless other examples.

Dear Networks, please stop insulting our intelligence. It is not becoming for either of us.

I remember on the old forum posting about a movie from the 1930s airing on 9gem that was a “premiere”.
Just ridiculous.
