– As reported earlier, last week’s Seth Green-hosted episode of RAW drew a 3.55 cable rating, which rounds up to a 3.6. In the segment-by-segment numbers, the bikini match pitting Kelly Kelly, Mickie James and Gail Kim against Maryse, Alicia Fox and Rosa Mendes lost 250,000 viewers coming off Seth Green’s segment. Carlito’s match with The Miz would lose 162,000 additional viewers. MVP’s loss to Jack Swagger saw a slight gain as the match gained 15,000 viewers. Chris Jericho’s interview and “match” with Mark Henry gained 899,000 viewers and was the high point of the show sans the overrun. Chavo Guerrero’s bout with Hornswoggle lost 412,000 viewers, although that’s not unusual for that point of the show. Evan Bourne’s match with Big Show gained 191,000 viewers. The main event featuring Seth Green, John Cena and Triple H against Legacy gained over a million viewers, 1,223,000 to be exact. Overall, the overrun drew a 4.47, which is tremendous.
