Ahsan Haque of IGN gave the episode a score of out of 10, commending Chris's storyline and praising Stewie's temporary build, but criticizing the staleness of Meg's continued poor treatment.  Steve Heisler of The . Club gave a much more critical review giving the episode a grade of a C. Heisler stated that neither of the storylines "held any water", because they were "ridiculously short". He also commented: "I'm starting to wonder if this show is even watchable anymore – 18 minutes of filler, 45 seconds of inspired silliness."
