CBS repeats buoyant on slow Labor Day


NEW YORK -- CBS' repeats swept through a lightly watched Labor Day, with only "Fat March" and "Dateline: NBC" as originals.

CBS had the top shows in viewership and the adults 18-49 demographic, according to preliminary estimates released Tuesday by Nielsen Media Research. The top in both counts was "Two and a Half Men" (9 million, 2.9/7), followed by "CSI: Miami" (8.9 million, 2.6/7).

Beyond that, there wasn't much to write home about with "Fat March" (4.9 million, 1.9/5) and "Dateline: NBC" (4.2 million, 1.6/4) trailing CBS.
