Britney Spears' turn as a ditzy love-struck receptionist on How I Met Your Mother is being touted as a breakthrough of sorts by the press: Not only did the show earn its best ratings ever last night, but Britney didn't even melt down!

CBS has released some clips of Britney Spears on this coming Monday's episode of How I Met Your Mother on CBS. They are nothing special, but in case any of you out there care, we posted one below, with another one after the jump.
