Neil Patrick Harris Against Second Britney Appearance
While I’m sure he’s appreciative of the attention she helped bring to the show, How I Met Your Mother‘s Neil Patrick Harris would rather a certain pop star stayed at home.
Britney Spears’ cameo last month helped the CBS comedy earn its best performance in the demos ever. So why wouldn’t he want her to come back? Harris would (smartly) prefer to see Mother succeed on its own merits. In an interview with the AP, the actor admitted that his opinions are not shared by everyone in his crew. “I’m in the minority that our show does not need stunt casting in order to succeed.”
The singer’s highly-publicized appearance was not the first time the series had had a celebrity visit. Other guests have included Heidi Klum, Enrique Iglesias, Vanessa Minnillo and Mandy Moore. If the stunt casting continues at this pace, the comedy could end up looking like a former NBC hit.

“I worry that if they start `Will and Grace’-ing us too much, that the show will suffer. And we’re all really proud of the content of the show.”
I, for one, am in total agreement with Neil. What more could HIMYM possible need aside from another Robin Sparkles appearance? (BTW - be looking for the Canadian singer to return on April 21.)
