The special received an additional Primetime Emmy Awards nomination that year for Outstanding Variety Special in addition to a Writers Guild Awards nomination. In September 2014, Silverman released the special as an audio album through Sub Pop Records, which went on to receive a 2015 Grammy nomination for Best Comedy Album.
