14. "Less than" four hours a week...? Come on CBS: if you're reporting on a Haarvard study

at least try to stick to correct usage. "Lees than" is for amounts, "fewer than" is for numbers: The people watched less TV. The people watched fewer hours of TV.

Sheesh.

(Don't mind me: I'm just bummed that I may have to cut back on watching Rev Sharpton, Rachel, and maybe even Lawrence O'Donnell...)
