Don’t take a bow, Rihanna, your documentary special stumbled in the ratings last night.

Monday’s hour-long Rihanna 777 special delivered only 1.7 million viewers and a 0.8 rating among adults 18-49. The show was trounced by NBC’s The Voice (11.9 million viewers, 3.9) and was the lowest-rated first-run program on a major broadcast network for the evening. The program was also torn up by the critics, with EW’s Tanner Stransky calling the publicity-friendly jet-set tour documentary “a shallow look at the pop star’s plane madness.”

Also last night: CBS’ How I Met Your Mother  (check out Sandra Gonzalez’s recap here) fell to a season low. ABC’s Dancing With the Stars was down 10 percent to dip below a 2.0 in the ratings for the first time ever for a performance show. NBC’s The Voice was down 9 percent to tie its low for this cycle. NBC’s Revolution perked up 17 percent.
