Critical reception[edit]

The special received generally positive critical reviews. Kyle Ryan, writing for The A.V. Club, said: "To put it succinctly: Louis C.K. seems unstoppable right now. And Oh My God only reinforces that perception."[2] Robert Lloyd, reviewer from the Los Angeles Times, said: "His HBO show starts slow, but his views of mortality are more funny and his fixation on 'horrible thoughts' still more so. Still, it's no 'Louie.'"[4]

The special holds a 90 on Metacritic, based on 5 reviews.[5]
