Critical Reception

AV Club gave The Damned a "B-" rating saying: "Granted, this is South Park, and its version of reality is always going to be exaggerated, but that’s exactly the problem with “The Damned.” Because of its close proximity to the actual debate; because it never reaches the comically absurd heights of other down-to-the-wire episodes like “About Last Night,” it feels like Parker and Stone are very much intending to comment on events that happened just two nights ago. But the commentary feels a bit off—lumpy when it should be razor-sharp."

IGN gave The Damned a "7.4" rating saying: "This week's episode tackled a huge amount of material, but to generally better results than the overstuffed premiere episode. Mr. Garrison's wildly successful Presidential campaign was the highlight this week, and it was nice to see stronger connections being forged among the various ongoing plot threads. However, with so much emphasis on continuity there's not really enough to distinguish one new episode from the next right now. There has to be a middle ground between telling a serialized story and allowing each episode to carve its own niche."
