The videos gathered between 13,500 and 93,000 views as of September 2015. The channel itself has approximately 16,000 subscribers.

Former broadcaster Steve Penk, a long time enemy of Moyles, branded the videos "rubbish", prompting Chris to retaliate by tweeting "Don't use my name to gain some headlines for yourself. Do something interesting and see what happens. Or just go away. Either or"

In October 2014, The Sun, The Mirror and the Guardian newspapers all ran articles painting Chris as a "desperate loser" whose "cringeworthy" YouTube videos are gathering "a fraction" of the listenership he had on Radio One. Moyles responded on his official Facebook page by thanking them for the publicity which has propelled him to over 10,000 subscribers on the YouTube channel. He also said: "If the point was to embarrass me and make me run away and hide.. it 100% hasn't worked. Haters will hate, and people who support me will do so with comments and tweets that they send me. Thanks for that. It's much appreciated."
