1. Turn on the TV or Turn the TV on?

One Grammar to Go reader asks: Is ‘Turn on the TV’ or ‘Turn the TV on’ correct and is there a rule about it?
Both are correct. 
Most transitive phrasal verbs can have the object EITHER between the verb and adverb particle: 
Can I turn the TV on?    Shall I take my shoes off?    Don’tuse the milk up.

OR after the adverb particle:

Can I turn on the TV?    Shall I take off my shoes?    Don’tuse up the milk.
For some phrasal verbs putting the object between the verb and adverb particle seems to be more common, and for others putting it after the adverb particle seems to be more common, but there is no general rule about this. However, when the object is a long noun phrase, we tend to put it after the adverb particle
I threw away those magazines that Jenny brought with her the other day.

In grammar explanation 2, the Positive example should have been: I/he/she/it/you/we/they could start on Friday. The Negative example should have been: I/he/she/it/you etc. couldn’t come.
