Britney Spears returns to 'Mother'

Apr 29, 2008 at 1:55 a.m. ET

Britney celebrates Mother's Day with CBS and her old friends at "How I Met Your Mother."

Singer Britney Spears will be guest staring in another episode of "How I Met Your Mother." 

The broadcast date is Monday, May 12 (8:30-9:00 PM, ET) on the CBS Television Network and the network will surely have a May sweeps hit on their hands. The day after Mother's Day episode will surely top her previous engagement.

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. 

Says "Mother" executive producer and co-creator Craig Thomas, "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."

Well, he should be! The last time Brit appeared on the CBS hit they show achieved its highest ratings ever.

Britney will return to her sitcom record-setting turn
