This just in. Britney Spears’ not-at-all-overhyped guest spot on HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER netted MOTHER it’s highest ratings ever in the holy grail of network demographics — 18-49 year olds.
Which means, in the grand tradition of WILL & GRACE, it’s time for MOTHER masterminds Carter Bays and Craig Thomas to start milking this plot device for everything it’s worth.
With that in mind, feel free to post away with your ideas for celebrity train-wreck’s and tabloid mainstays that Ted can date next. Here’s a few obvious ones to get you started…Mischa Barton, Victoria Beckham, Paris Hilton, Amy Winehouse, Tori Spelling, The Olsen Twins [To quote Barney, "Legendary!"], Nicole Ritchie, Eliot Spitzer’s Call Girl, Rosie, Heidi Montag, Jamie Lynn Spears, Denise Richards, the ghost of Anna Nicole Smith… too far? You decide.
