Chris Brown and Rihanna

As they say in the promos for the show: "Ripped from the headlines".

Next Wednesday's episode of NBC's Law & Order: SVU will be based on the turbulent relationship between Chris Brown and Rihanna. Maybe the surprising thing is why it took them so long to do it.

The episode, called Funny Valentine, is based...what's the point? Look at the promo and see for yourself. Oh yes, Wendy Williams makes a cameo appearence on the show as well. But then, of course she would.

But do you think this is tasteless, or it doesn't really matter? Besides NBC has to do something. In case you haven't heard, it's currently fifth in overall ratings, coming in behind Telemundo, among all the commercial networks.

    I don't think that it is going to matter.

    Perhaps they are doing it now because NO ONE IN THEIR RIGHT MIND would have believed that Rihanna would go back to the man who used her as a battering ram.

    I would've thought that they'd have done this three years ago at least-three years ago, being pretty much the last time I watched L&O. I swear the last time I watched that show was when they still filmed in NYC.

    A REAL twist would be if the episode reveals that the "battered" celeb girlfriend and the guy planned the whole thing for free publicity; because even they know their talent is questionable. Or maybe that would be a documentary...

    Both of you are right. @ Miles, yeah--I keep forgetting that there are only about 4 media conglomerates in America now. NBC and Ri-Ri/CB's employers probably have the same parent company.

    I'd like to see that too, but network TV's bread is buttered by questionable talent. They're not biting the hand that feeds.

    TV episode writers aren't that creative

    Well the have done battered women in several of the shows iterations. The extremity of their PDAs might have forced them to do the episode. The female character must not be one note and must trump the sister from last weeks episode. Battered sister of SVU detective showed signs of abuse and claim to be pregnant who the detective already had a history with. She took out life insurance and set her sister up to kill him. So please be some crazy aids love triangle or I don't know whats the use of crafting the story.
