Britney Makes Unfunny Show Unfunnier

5/12/2008 4:41 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Brit makes her second appearance on "How I Met Your Mother" tonight -- and while her acting skills still leave a bit to be desired, her chest does its best to serve as a distraction.

HIMYM is HILARIOUS and Britney did a great job playing ditzy stalker Abby. She's not supposed to be playing a rocket scientist. I think the role is perfect and hope she returns again. Whoever said the show is faultering must be a part of a GCWOK!!! Way to go Britney!!! TMZ, usually I'm with you, but you suck this time! Leave the girl alone! She's doing so much better! Does it feel good to build people up just to knock them down?

He's just another Idiot    

I hope that Britney has set up an airtight Trust Fund for her boy's college education - one that gold digging, lazy lout K-Fed can not get into or his money mooching lawyer Kaplan. It would be awful if they grew up like K-Dud - a 9th grade education, never a steady job, sponging off of women, marrying women for their money, fathering four children and never spending one dime on them - In other words, a real Deadbeat Lowlife. Those are cute little boys (thank God, they don't look like K-Dud) and I hope they don't grow up to be dirtbags like their father.

Are you all crazy? This is the best show on tv...well 2nd to Greys. She was cuter the 1st time she was on but it wasn't that bad. The show is the best when they don't have guest appearances. Love, love, love this show!!!!

She did ok for a non actor but televisionland should know. There is another talent available for this type of gigs. Also, She can give a wonderful mistress of ceremony.

74. PLEASE, TMZ, no more comments about Britney. She's on the road to recovery so leave her alone. If you insist on writing nasty news about people, write about the real deadbeat, money mooching, untalented morons in Hollywood like K-Fed and Denise Richards. Also, Heather Mills, Alec Baldwin, Star Jones, Rosie O'Donnell and Paris Hilton are all sleazy people we love to hate. Take a break from Britney. . . please.

It wasn't as bad as I thought it would be, but on the flip side Brit needs an acting coach and to stop trying to hard.

Jesus not Jesus    

Britney's acting [pleasestop] makes her pregnant 16 year old sister Jamie look like Meryl Streep on her Zoey 101 show. Enuf with the TV ratings stunt with Brit-Brit!

BEFORE EVERYONE JUMPS ON THE BANDWAGON AND SAYS WHAT A LOUSY ACTRESS BRITNEY IS ; FIRST ASK YOURSELF.; HOW GOOD OF A JOB COULD YOU DO TRYING TO MAKE AN OPENLY GAY GUY LOOK LIKE A ROMEO.
I AM AMAZED THAT PEOPLE ARE EVEN STILL WATCHING THE SHOW WHEN THEY KEEP TRYING TO CONVINCE EVERYONE WHAT A SKIRT CHASER "BARNEY" IS.

It's not just Brittney that is unfunny, sitcoms lost their edge years ago and they are in pretty dire shape. You ever notice that on a sitcom every character sounds exactly the same and has the same one line, two lines, joke... one-two- joke paifully predictable pace. Writers, such on the terribly unfunny HIMMM writers make al the characters equally as funny (or unfunny) with the same timing. Even the kid actors on sitcoms have the same joke pacing. It's all crrrap folks. Bringing in Britney is obviously a ratings ploy. She is not very talented as an actress, but in the dumbing down of television network comedy it's almost hard to notice. I can tell you from the inside that they are shooting Brittney's scenes wihout an audience and they have a very hard time editing her performace to get anything that works. They were even feeding her lines to repeat from the acting coach. But with reality shows taking over television, we expect less and less. Whereas, classic television shows like: All In The Family can still be watched today. Two and a half Men is equally as unfunny as HIMMM and it's "America's" favorite comedy. Who the hell watches this rubbish? Network Execs are so busy getting jobs for their sons and daughters that they wouldn't know a good comedy writer if they burst out of their chest. (Now that would be funny). So, don't blame Brittney for talking a TV gig. She was hired by a network desperately seeking ratings -- not searching for someone with great comedy timing.

I think she did a real good job....on the small clip I saw....no matter how good or bad Britney is...she still brings in the ratings....and that is all the network really cares about.......so I think everyone should just relax and give her a break and let her enjoy herself and let her start feeling better about herself......and the real Britney will come forward and get down to business.......
