Famous TV Shows That ‘Jumped The Shark’

TV Shows

If you’re a fan of nostalgic television, you probably remember the Happy Days episode when Fonzie infamously “jumped the shark.” In season 5, episode 3, titled “Hollywood: Part 3,” Fonzie quite literally jumped over a shark while jet skiing. The bizarre sequence actually led to the term “jumping the shark,” when referring to a TV show that has perhaps run its course or comes up with something very odd to try to save a show that is losing its creative spark.

These gimmicks often lose fans, with some errors coming from stars leaving the show or simply bad writing. In honor of the day that Fonzie jumped over that shark in Happy Days, September 20, 1977, let’s go over some other beloved shows that unfortunately, too, jumped the shark.
