American Idol continued its Friday night dominance.  Shortland Street was down 46% on last Friday’s episode – i.e. down 164,000 viewers and Two and a Half Men was down 148,000 viewers from last Friday  This may have been due to the holiday weekend or the Sky transmission problems during the second half of Shortland Street and first part of Two and a Half Men.
