Which Current Television Show Has "Jumped the Shark"?

6 years ago

Are you familiar with the term “jumped the shark”? A few years back, after the popular TV series “Happy Days” had been on the air for many seasons, they featured an episode where break out star “Fonzie” came to Los Angeles.  For those of you who don’t remember Happy Days, it was a family sit-com set in the 50’s, and Fonzie was the leather jacket clad “cool” guy with slicked back hair.  In the L.A. episode, Fonzie inexplicably donned a pair of water skis and jumped over a tank full of live sharks.  This was so out of character, that it spawned a term that basically means a TV show has lost its way and it’s time to pull the plug.

Which of the current crop of TV programs do you think has “jumped the shark”? Do you see anything that has worn out its welcome with the audience? If you don’t see a show you want, please select “other” and leave your choice as a comment below.
