I'm so excited, Snarky! I've been on the lookout for a grammar goof to send in and I found this very noticeable mix-up of less vs. fewer.Nice going, Deanna! It's a beauty.
Where does TBS go wrong? Its slogan mixes up less and fewer.
- Use fewer for countable nouns. Since we got a DVR, we spend fewer minutes watching ads. We can count minutes.
- Use less for uncountable nouns. Since we got a DVR, we spend less time watching ads. Time can be measured, but not counted.
- more movie... fewer commercials
