Harris wary of guest-star turns

'Mother' star worries CBS show will suffer

Britney Spears‘ March 24 guest stint on “How I Met Your Mother” may have been — wait for it — legendary, drawing an additional 1 million viewers to the laffer.

But while exec producer Carter Bays says he’s game for the popstar to return, star Neil Patrick Harris says he’s against guest-star turns in general.

“I worry that if they start ‘Will and Grace’-ing us too much, that the show will suffer,” Harris told the AP last week.

As far as Harris, who plays womanizer Barney Stinson, is concerned, that would be decidedly not awesome.
