Upcoming ‘Law & Order SVU’ Episode Based On Chris Brown And Rihanna

Upcoming 'Law & Order SVU' Episode Based On 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.
