Lately, How I Met Your Mother hasn't exactly been shy about piling on the guest stars. Remember Britney Spears?
Well, for tonight's first episode of the new year, it's happening again, with Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt joining Kim Kardashian for cameos on the show. I was initially wary of the idea, but the way the three of them are being used does make me chuckle: They're the faces on the front of a Them Weekly magazine that Marshall wants to read in the bathroom but can't, because he's afraid that taking the magazine with him is an instant signal that he wants to do a No. 2.
OK, so maybe I'm more interested in the night's other plotline, which has Ted and Robin attempting to be roommates and discovering that maybe they got along better when they were sleeping together. But hey, I'm generally in favor of anything that gives this show a ratings boost.
