It's Game Over for the Smashenburn family. UPN is reportedly pulling the plug on Prime Time's first every CGI animated series Game Over after the show racked in an embarrassing 0.9 rating/2 share in households and a 0.6 rating in adults 18-49 according to fast national data. Lara Croft, the Tomb Raider herself, had been drawn into a guest appearance alongside Raquel to have a heroine heart-to-heart over an espresso.

The groundbreaking comedy, set within the animated world of a video-game, followed the home life of the Smashenburn family: Rip (voiced by Patrick Warburton), Raquel (Lucy Liu), Alice (Rachel Dratch) and Billy (E.G. Daily). Show had been penned to run for an initial six episodes with a second series starring Lara Croft under consideration. Producer David Goetsch had hoped the comedy complemented the UPN brand, appealing to a young adult audience. No official comment from UPN at time of press.
