    have/has

    Hi,

    What do you think about the following sentence:

    There has/have been lots of new programmes on TV lately

    I suppose we should choose "have" because of "programmes", but very often we say "There has ..." because of "there".

    Thanks

    Verona is right. It's what follows the verb, not 'there'.

    However, I have to admit that in informal conversation you will sometimes hear 'incorrect' usage - There's hundreds of people out there.

    Follow the rules if you are taking any form of examination.
