Britney Spears Caused A HIMYM Ratings Spike That Lasted Forever?! Co-Creator Carter Bays Explains HERE!
Um, have we mentioned before that she’s a QUEEN!?
Last week, co-creators Craig Thomas and Carter Bays participated in one of Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” sessions. The whole thing was actually really enlightening, but one particular deet stuck out to us: Britney saved the show!
Carter was asked the question, “Did any of the guests ever seek you out because they wanted to be on the show?”
“We got a call a few weeks after the writers strike ended saying that Britney Spears wanted to be on our show. And she specifically wanted to be in the episode "Ten Sessions," which sent a chill down our spines, because that's the one where we meet Stella. I immediately imagined Britney playing Stella and had a minor panic attack, because it's such a big role and needed an proven, experienced actress like Sarah Chalke. But to her credit, Britney liked the character of Abby, and wanted to play that part. So we said sure! And by golly she put our show on the map. It can't be overstated. Britney Spears rescued us from ever being on the bubble again. Thanks Britney!”
Eeek! So, all of the HIMYM fans out there, Britney’s new address is Planet Hollywood, Las Vegas, NV in case you want to send her a thank you note. LOLz!
We wonder if Miz Spears even knows that she helped them that much?!
