Not wanting to miss a chance to up the ratings during sweeps, "How I Met Your Mother" has set another Britney Spears appearance for May 12. Here's the announcement:
Singer Britney Spears will return to HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER to guest star in an episode to be broadcast Monday, May 12 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network. Production on the episode began today.
"We're all so thrilled to have Britney joining us once again. And just to head it off at the pass this time around: Yes, Mom, Britney's very nice and no, I can't get her autograph for you," said Craig Thomas, executive producer and co-creator, HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER.
When Barney and Abby realize that they have one thing in common — their mutual hatred of Ted — the "couple" decides to go to the bar to flaunt their new relationship in Ted's face. Desperate to get a rise out of his former pal, Barney pops a surprising question to Abby.
I guess this means the Barney-Robin hookup will be brief...
