Monday: ‘How I Met Your Mother’

[IMG:L]How I Met Your Mother — 8:30/7:30c on CBS

There’s a small chance you might’ve heard about Britney Spears’ guest-starring role on tonight’s How I Met Your Mother, but did you know that Scrubs’ Sarah Chalke also stops by?

Spears’ much-reported guest role features the fallen pop star playing a dermatologist’s receptionist who has a huge crush on Ted (Josh Radnor).

Funnily enough, it has been virtually unreported that TV veteran Chalke is that dermatologist, the one Ted is really interested in.

It stands to reason, though: The beloved but little-watched HIMYM needs all the buzz it can get these days.

Tonight is the sitcom’s second show back since its writers-strike-induced hiatus. It is preceded and followed by new episodes of the more fortunate Big Bang Theory and Two and a Half Men, respectively.
