We’re just one day away from Glee‘s monumental “Britney/Brittany” episode featuring the pop hits of Ms. Spears (as well as a cameo by the pop star herself!), and we’ve decided to pass the excruciatingly long hours by taking a look back at Brit’s most memorable performances on the small screen. Whether guest-starring on sitcoms, variety shows or voicing cartoons, Britney has left her goofy, undeniably entertaining mark on television history. (And we don’t mean by her involuntary appearances on TMZ‘s trashy TV show.) Watch the singer’s six best boob tube clips below the jump:
This has been something of a rough season, what with the Stella and the various tents that the two pregnant female leads have had to wear to hide their conditions, but last night I realized just how much I love this show. Although two things: first, I did think that the good vibes were going to be completely thrown off by the neighbors onto whose deck the five pals leapt coming outside and either calling the police or throwing a big hot-tub-centric party of their own; and second, under-22-minute running times for allegedly half-hour shows are just criminal. I know that networks have to keep their lights on too, but come on.

I don’t know about you, but among my friends who watch How I Met Your Mother, there was a lot of wailing and gnashing of virtual teeth over the “twist” at the end of last night’s episode, in which an irritating character from the recent past made a return, thanks to the fickle fingers of fate (and an apparently unhygenic bagel place). But the long montage of hugs that led up to that slightly disappointing, but apparently not game-changing, moment was kind of awesome, thanks both to Ted Mosby turning into one of those kids at the Bamboozle wearing a “FREE HUGS” t-shirt for a few minutes and the use of “Glad Girls,” by the shamble-pop stalwarts Guided By Voices, as the musical bed. Clip from last night’s show above; the 100% 120 Minutes-y video after the jump.
