On Wednesday, Chris Brown and Rihanna's relationship will be on screen, but not in the way most might think. NBC's crime drama Law & Order: SVU will depict the pop stars' rocky romance and try to solve the murder of the character based on Brown, writes Shadow and Act.

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 appearance 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.
