Video: Britney Spears on How I Met Your Mother

TV Tonight: How I Met Your Mother Gets Britney Back


After Britney Spears made her first appearance on How I Met Your Mother last month, show star Neil Patrick Harris got into a kind of media kerfuffle over whether he did or did not say he wanted to keep guest stars like Britney off the show. So I'm finding it a little amusing that when Brit returns to the show tonight, she seems to be spending most of her scenes with Harris.

Britney is back to reprise her role as Abby, the receptionist in Ted's dermatologist's office. As we now know, Ted and Stella have been dating — and raising all sorts of speculation that she's the mother — but Abby isn't faring quite so well. Not only did she have to watch Ted, who she believes might be the love of her life, run off with her boss, but she also suffered the indignity of sleeping with Barney and then never hearing from him again. (You and half the women in New York, Abby.) When the two meet again, though, they bond over their shared hatred of Ted and decide to show off like a couple — even showing up at the bar in matching baby-blue sweaters.

This episode looks like it will feature more of Britney than the two-line snippets we got last time. Do you think you'll be tuning in? Britney's last appearance brought in about a million extra viewers, and though the series is expected to be renewed at Wednesday's CBS upfronts regardless, it would still be nice to have another good showing. To check out some scenes from tonight's episode, just
