    It's only been a few days since Chris Brown's backstage tantrum following his appearance on ABC's Good Morning America on Tuesday, but the network reportedly wants him back already—with his ex-girlfriend Rihanna. A source close to ABC News allegedly told E! that the network wants to use Brown's meltdown to their advantage, adding, "It's all about the ratings... at all other costs." And with Rihanna's restraining order against Brown recently lifted, it would be easier to get the two together. Though ABC's Diane Sawyer got Rihanna to talk about her physical abuse by Brown, E! said its ABC source denied Sawyer is getting involved this time, and that the interview would be conducted again by Robin Roberts. Meanwhile, the network has decided not to press charges against Brown, and he is still scheduled to appear on Dancing With the Stars this week.
