Hey Britney… Have You Met Ted?

If HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER gets renewed for a fourth season, fans may have… wait for it… Britney Spears to thank.

According to E! Online, and confirmed by MOTHER Masterminds Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, Spears will appear as a guest star on the show’s fourteenth episode of the season playing a co-worker of Teds.

Such stunt-casting worthy of well, Spears last TV sitcom gig WILL & GRACE naturally begs the question: Just how desperate are you to see HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER get picked up for a fourth season? Because this TV Addict will publicly pledge to buy tickets to a Britney Spears concert [assuming she ever performs again], should the inevitable ratings boost factor into HOW I MET YOU MOTHER getting renewed.

    Same here. It is so completely worth having Britney on the show if it means it’ll get picked up for Season 4. This is great news!

    Hey if it gives it a ratings boost, Im all for Britney. This needs a 4th season…

    Sure, but what happens after Britney goes and takes her audience of ne’er do wells and tabloid readers with her.

    Then all that’s left is a missed opportunity to have Alicia Silverstone on the show.

    I’m all for it because odds are HIMYM will get picked up and Britney might not even pull it together to guest star (just being realistic)

    I think it sucks. Why do people think she still has enough fans to pull into the show.. she is a total trainwreck and I don’t want to see her in my favorite show, and she is a sucky actress. I think they are tainting this show for me a bit. I would much rather see Alicia Silverstone than BS.

    Man this sucks.
