Britney Goes Gaga in 'Mother' of All Roles

(March 20) - Excited to see Britney Spears in her return to TV comedy on "How I Met Your Mother"? CBS has released two snippets of the troubled singer's turn as a lovestruck girl on the popular sitcom.

Spears shares scenes with the show's lead character, Ted, played by Josh Radnor, as a somewhat ditsy receptionist who works in his doctor's office and becomes smitten with him.

The episode is scheduled to air March 24.

The show would mark Spears' first role in a prime-time TV series since a March 2006 guest spot on the NBC comedy "Will & Grace," in which she played a Christian conservative talk show host opposite series regular Sean Hayes.

Spears' career as a performer has been mostly on the skids since her personal life plunged into turmoil following her breakup with Federline in November 2006.

She has been in and out of rehab, and her highly publicized comeback performance on the MTV Video Music Awards in September last year was widely panned as an embarrassing flop.
