In regards to her appearance on the show, Mortimer told The Philadelphia Inquirer, "It was amazing doing telly. I'd never done a sitcom before and it was so fast. You're given dialogue as you're walking onto the set and it's kind of hairy. There are 10 people standing around watching the monitor and if they don't laugh – instead of having another chance to do it – someone writes another line."

TV Guide's Matt Webb Mitovich opined that "though the'My guy friend is dating my boyfriend' gag has been done to death on TV sitcoms, 30 Rock is to be forgiven if only because the same episode gave us a preview of, no, not The Real Wedding Crashers, but Jefferson, starring... Tracy Jordan." Julia Ward of TV Squad awarded this episode with 5 out of 7, said that Jenna Maroney's absence was upside to the episode, explaining, "I like Jane Krakowski, but I can't say that I've missed her".
