Watch Britney Spears on How I Met Your Mother

Britney on How I Met Your Mother: Yay or Nay?

So last night was Britney Spears' big acting comeback on How I Met Your Mother, and if the goal was to get some big ratings for the on-the-bubble comedy, it worked: The show pulled in 10.6 million viewers and hit its highest ratings ever in the key 18-49 demographic. Coupled with the better than average 9.7 million viewers the show got last week, I have to think things are looking pretty good for a season four.

Personally, I thought the best part of the episode was Ted's two-minute date (watch it here), and I definitely think Stella was supposed to be the mother — had that whole Alicia Silverstone/Britney/Sarah Chalke thing not happened, that is. So, was having Britney on the show worth it? What did you make of her performance?
