Jump The Shark

It's that defining moment when you know your favorite TV program has reached its peak, and from that point it's all downhill. Way downhill. Like when Terri Hatcher remarries her ex in order to get a splinectomy. Or when Colonel Henry Blake's plane went down. or When Joey tried doing his own show. It's called jumping the shark, and it's not good.

I think M*A*S*H did ok until Radar left. Though Henry dying was perhaps the best episode (I always liked Captain Tuttle). The origin is when Fonzi literally jumped over a shark on Happy Days.
And let's not forget when Vincent Price showed up in a cave when the Brady Bunch took a family trip to Hawaii. Tarantula anyone?
