A small Baltimore audience for 'Grey's' episode

WMAR-TV, Baltimore's ABC affiliate, did not draw much of an audience Thursday night for a repeat of "Grey's Anatomy" that was eerily similar to real-life events earlier in the day at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

The episode involved a man shooting doctors after his wife died following surgery. At Hopkins, a gunman shot a doctor after becoming upset about what the doctor told him about his mother's condition. The doctor survived, but the gunman killed himself and his mother.

The two hourlong episodes that had aired as a season finale in May drew a 1.6 rating and 4 share. That's 1.6 percent of all Baltimore TV households and 4.0 perecent of sets in use at the time. The episode finished behind "Nikita" on WNUV, "The Apprentice" on WBAL, and repeats of "The Big Bang Theory" and "The Mentalist" on WJZ.

The 1.6 ratings is about the same as other repeats of "Grey's" have drawn, area analysts said Friday.
