Burnett was celebrated by her colleagues and fellow actors with the Life Achievement Award at the 2016 SAG Awards.

The mid-season finale on May 23 delivered more than 2.2 million viewers in Nielsen live+3 ratings, as fans tuned in to see the conclusion of Kim (Seehorn) and Jimmy's elaborate plot against Howard (Fabian) and experienced a pulse-racing surprise in the episode's final moments.
