Monday on TV: Rihanna is on Fox ... but she's no role model

If you're a Rihanna fan, you'll probably want to check out Rihanna 777 (7 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13), which features Rihanna jetting to seven countries to perform seven concerts in seven days, traveling on a Boeing 777.

Personally, if my daughters were still at an impressionable age, I'd be a bit uncomfortable if they were Rihanna fans. At the very least, we'd talk about how it's not a good thing to go back to the boyfriend who beat you up.
