Britney's Back….and On Top!

| Filed under: TV NewsBritney Spears

wenn5107717.jpg

As we mentioned last week, Britney Spears was set to appear in the CBS sitcom, How I Met Your Mother.

And, surprisingly enough, when it aired last night, the show received its highest ratings ever!

Even more surprising, the critics liked it!

The Associated Press stated, "Britney the Trainwreck showed how she can still be Britney the Performer. The 26-year-old pop star, who previously was on a 2006 episode of Will and Grace, appeared fresh-faced and relaxed, capably filling the small role."

The Daily News stated that for "those who hang on every one of Britney's career moves, this bold casting decision worked out. Spears proved she can act every bit as well as she can sing, and with some of the nuances she brought to the character, you'd almost swear she'd been there before."

Could this possibly be the comeback Britney and the rest of the world has been waiting for?

We sure hope so!

    She looks like a middle aged 40 something soccer mom.
    she also only appeared on the screen for a few seconds
    so how in hell does she have good reveiws? She's a talentless whore
    she is good at nothing.

    don't f this up britney!! i hope this doesn't turn out like that time, right after she and kevin fed broke up, when she cut her hair and appeared on letterman and the press went wild with "brit's back!!!" then a few weeks later she's shaved bald, wild in the streets, attacking cars with umbrellas. it's obvious even though the paps love to put brit down, everyone wants her to make a big come back and get back to normal soon. what brit needs to do is get involved in a high profile charity for children. pull an angelina - make the media forget the bad things you have done. (like angelina's drinking blood and man stealing) reinvent yourself, brit! take a small, cameo role in a hot new movie and do really well - take acting classes if you must. get respected for your talent again! then come out with a live, acoustic album! you'll be back in no time!! call me, brit! ;)

    How come you're suddenly kissing her ass? Because she paid you or because you want to claim a piece of the pie when she re-emerges as the star she always was… you are so full of shit Perez… but then you knew that already

    she was absolutely adorable- loved her. i actually like the show, it's funny- if they had not brought her on. i would not have watched it.

    113

    what they mean is she is irrelevant in the music world, she's been reduced to acting on a lame ass show.

    HOW HUMILIATING to know her counterparts are on the up and up and she's been left behind.

    114

    She looked good and even better, she looked sober and not crazy. I hope she pulls it together.. I especially hope those disgusting men who were using her and manipulating her and stealing from her are out of her life and she can go back to being a normal person- as normal as the paps will let her be. Her parents need to stay in her life and be of some help and guidance to her. They need to get their acts together and help their daughter grow up.

    123

    I'm curious as to weather this website is really just a britney fansite cause her performance last night was not that great. She looked stiff and uncomfortable. Amazing? Great? Are you serious? Her performance was average! Why do people overhype everything she does? She's an average talent overall and people like she's this phenomenon. It must be good to be young, blond, and white in America! Everything you do is seen as great!

    HIMYM is a Great show too bad brit had to ruin the credibilty of the show. Smart move for them to get ratings but I hope they never have her back. The writer was correct she acts as well as she can sing … both of which she does terribly!!!!

    YOU BRITNEY LOOOOOOOOOOOSERS MAKE ME PUKE IN MY MOUTH……..SHITNEY SUCKED BUTHOLE……SHE ALWAYS DOES…………………………….

  36. The Joker says – reply to this


    136

    I guess the expectations were so low for Britney that if she made it through her performance without falling over, it was considered a drastic improvement.

    And the ratings justify the decision to cast her — the actual quality of her performance wasn't a factor. This was stunt casting, pure and simple, and it worked!

    I love the comment about the fact that she acts as well as she sings. Given that her singing is crap, I guess her acting is too…

  37. WHATEVER says – reply to this


    137

    SHIT, I missed it. I just am so happy that having her dad take over is actually working. Who-da thought? Shoulda happened earlier. Oh well, better late then never. You go girl.

    Anyway all the idiots who want a come back should realize that her kids are still small she should focus on them and not try to come back.Be a mom first Britney.

    I checked out the episode on you tube. It really wasn,t that impressive. Get over it!

  48. How I Met Your Vajayjay says – reply to this


    148

    I watched about a minute and a half of it, all I could think of was seeing her stinky vaj all spread and that gross C-section scar. So if you love Britney so much Perezito, let's all kiss her fucked up ass, and then move on to the next psycho.

    The show is always funny and with that said I'm happy for Britney. She did a great job and she looked great. Good for her, it's so nice to see her in good spirits and doing well.

    Re: david

    did you really come on this board to insult a nationality that is not your own- go practice saying "i like myself" in the mirror- maybe then you will be less hateful. btw, i notice you left your nationality out altogether as you insulted another- i can't imagine why…

    157

    It was bad.
    She's awful.
    You could totally tell when they would "CUT" scenes to go to her robotic acting.
    She was useless in the role.
    And I love how her people took that quote as literal instead of the jab that it was "Spears proved she can act every bit as well as she can sing". Poor thing.

    This is my favorite comedy on TV and it was just a useless episode with a useless stunt to put on TV after the writer's strike. ONLY good part was Sarah C from Scrubs.

    HIMYM writers - get on the ball, last week's ep was WEAK and so was this one. And stop with stunt casting (once was enough, learn your lesson) unless it's someone from NPH past or from Alysson's past work. Other than that, those 5 actors and the girls you get to play Ted's dates work perfectly.

    158

    BE A MOTHER 1st- HELLO, THEY took her children from her, and why is besides the point now, what's done is done. however, b/c she does not have them, she obviously has some time on her hands- might as well fill that time w/ productive, work related activities rather than sit around & do nothing or worse. besides, she has to fix herself before she can get back in that role, this was good for her self esteem. really, TOO FN CRITICAL.

    But her acting stank to the other side of the Atlantic… She had the same look on her face for the entire show.

    Yea because she is a shitty person she doesn't even care of her own kids fame and money are more important than her own blood.
    She and her fans are sad people.

    Re: EuropEll
    i agree she has no acting range at all.give us some real talent.her fans say she was good because they pity her.

  63. Britney needs a babysitter - haha says – reply to this


    163

    The highest ratings because people just wanted to watch this idiot "perform" and not ALL critics are raving about her - some of the reviews indicate she should stick to her day job - going to starbucks and spending all of her money.

    She is still DISGUSTING and A JOKE

  64. lala says – reply to this

    168

    I thought her acting was horrendous. Good lord. Having the fabulous Sarah Chalke on at the same time certainly didn't help her cause either. Britney better stick to whatever it is she does when she's not acting. It's not her bag baby.

  69. zane says – reply to this


    169

    I LOVED IT!!! It was SO great to see her on my screen without having some kind of crazy news to it. I especially loved the ending, where Ted went on the 2-minute date, then Britney went running after him. lmao :D

  70. kirsten says – reply to this


    170

    Anyone who thought Britney was funny on HIMYM must not be true fans of the show. She completely screwed up the natural chemistry that was going on between the other actors. She's an amateur obviously and you don't put amateurs on halfway decent shows. I'll admit that HIMYM is going downhill lately but never enough to warrant another Britney visit. Keep her away from sitcoms. I thought it was a very awkward performance. I felt like I was watching a really bad middle school play when she started talking. You can't help but notice how much better everyone else around her was. The lamp in the background had more to offer.

  71. alimac says – reply to this


    171

    I always watch that show, I watched it because I always watch it, not because she was on, I thought her little and I mean little part, was laughable. She was not the main part of the show, her charactor was a joke, and they made fun of her I thought. I don't think she added anything to the show, any actress with little experience could have filled that role.

    173

    I am sorry but there was nothing special about Britneys performance last night. Anyone could have performed that part!!!! I was more impressed by the actress playing the doctor than I was with Britney.
    I watch the show regularly because man it's funny and yes it was funny last night but no more than any other night.

    Anyone could look great if they have 5lbs of makeup on, you could actually see the cover up on her face.

    184

    I agree with you Perez!
    Glad to see the media has become "kind" to Britney again! NO ONE deserved what she went through and in hind sight, it obviously didn't help her medical condition or to save her from Sam Lutfi's control! ALL of us have issues - Sam may not have created Britney's personal issues pre-Kevin separation days BUT he was instrumental in taking her and her career down without even hardly trying …. LOSER!

    It's awesome she's finally getting her act together. But isn't it funny that when Brit does something bad, Perez calls her Unfitney and bashes the hell out of her? But when she does things right, he says nothing but good things? PICK A SIDE YOU IDIOT!

    Britney was really good. I thought credit is due to the HIMYM for giving Britney the chance when no one else would. She was actually really funny, some real laugh out loud moments. Go Brit x

    Act as well as she can sing??? CBS?? what is CBS…. isnt that one of thoes networks that used to provide entertainment back in the cave man days? DOes anyone really watch anything CBS has on??While i am glad to see Britney is getting better its obvious her career is over and she should settle down and raise her kids rather than persue the entertainment career any further.

    Is it just me or did she finally get some decent freakin extentions? And her hair is growing out enough so it doesn't look as obvious and ratty. Oh yeah, maybe she's just actually finally washing it. I'm glad she's gettin her shit back together, it was becoming too horrible to watch.

  92. tbone says – reply to this


    192

    HIMYM is my fave show so I was a bit annoyed that they had Brit on. I could really give two shits about her. The episode was quite good, but it had nothing to do with Britney. She was totally average. Her character was totally pointless. But I am glad people watched- it should help the show get renewed for next year.

    193

    "Spears proved she can act every bit as well as she can sing"

    am I the only person who picked up on this veiled, but very true, insult regarding Britney's "talent"

    for you low foreheads who still don't get it - Britney's acting talent matches her singing talent. Britney can't sing. Therefore, she can't act.

    Socrates kicks ass!!

    I watch HIMYM every week because it's hilarious (has anyone seen the "annoying habit" episode? Classic!!! Last night's show was good but a little weak. I'm glad Brit's appearance got them the ratings they need and hopefully more people will tune in every week.

    Good for Britney IF she really has her shit together - only time will tell and I wish her all the best. It was too much too soon for her and with that crappy mother she has - how could she have gone any other way! Stay strong Brit :)

    199

    Let's face it, if it would have been any other aspiring actress, the performance would have been forgetable. But because it was Britney Spears, ratings were up and undue attention was given. Just because someone can deliver lines without sounding crazy does not mean they can act. But enough about that……HOW PREGNANT DID SHE LOOK?!!? They dressed her all in empire waists and hid her belly with a desk and a purse…..Hello?!

    I watched last night's episode, the first one I've seen. She was great.

    Let's hope that this is the start of Britney's comeback. Thankfully her father stepped in and prevented what could have been her death.
