Britney Spears made her fans - and fans of "Modern Family" - happy when she expressed her love of the hit ABC comedy last week.
"I know everybody is excited about the Super Bowl, but I personally can't wait to see the next episode of Modern Family! Funniest show on TV," she tweeted on Jan. 31.
Two of the show's stars - Sofia Vergara and Jesse Tyler Ferguson - replied almost immediately. "@BritneySpears on Modern Family? What do you guys think?" Vergara asked her followers. They were excited about the idea, making the hashtag #GetBritneyOnModernFamily a trending topic within minutes.
Spears later posted a photo of the trend on her Facebook wall. "You all are at it again - look what's trending!" she wrote. "Ahhhh I would love to be on it!"
Will Twitter users influence ABC executives to have her on the show? We're pretty sure it's a done deal, actually. Who else has been booked on a show, thanks to fan input?
Everyone's favorite Golden Girl, Betty White, was asked to host "Saturday Night Live" after one Facebook user started a campaign. The petition gained thousands of signatures, leading to her first-time hosting gig in 2010.
"It's lovely, and at my age it's certainly unexpected," the "Hot in Cleveland" star said at the time. "I've got so much energy, it's ridiculous. I love working. My schedule is a feverish one, and I'm used to that."
A second campaign launched to get her as the host of the 2011 Academy Awards, but that one never picked up the same steam as the "Saturday Night Live" one.
Fans of "Star Trek: The Next Generation" are campaigning to get actress Marina Sirits on the 14th season of the show starting later this spring. The actress has given her blessing to the campaign, now complete with its own website.
"Fans from all over have been actively campaigning for Marina Sirtis to appear on the upcoming 2012 season of 'Dancing with the Stars,' the website reads. "Join in and let ABC and Executive Producer Conrad Green know you want to see Marina on the show!"
Talk show host Ellen DeGeneres started a 2011 campaign against shows like "Celebrity Apprentice" for their extended shows that stretch to two hours or more.
"I'm talking to you, 'Celebrity Apprentice,'" she joked in a mock PSA that aired on the show. "You've assembled the craziest cast ever, but what's crazier than that is making me spend two hours of my Sunday watching your show …."
She has a point.
Do you think Britney Spears should head to 'Modern Family'?
