WMG / Smash TV

The game show Smash TV was a Short Runner.
In fictional 1999, Smash TV produced so many complaints from the PTC that it was canceled after one episode and the time slot reused for Super Smash Bros.
  • It cannot be a single episode since it is topping the ratings AND it has a home game version. How you play it is beyond me since it is a boardgame. If anything, if the player manages to finish the game then that is the LAST episode of the series since you manage to kill the show's host.
