To Jump The Shark: With reference to a tv program to make a change or air a program that marks the inevitable point when it starts to go downhill (apparently named for such a point on the run of the tv show Happy Days when Fonzie is waterskiing and jumps over a shark--the point when it was near about over--

This ain't necessarily black--(but there are some black shows on here) but this is a site where you can look up your favorite program and see when it jumped the shark and also where you can vote and add your comments--youse guys can see I have lots of important things to do--hey Cynique. You take care o dat t'ing?

Well, Chris, we are on the same wave length for a change. I love this kind of trivia. I can't cut the heavy stuff anymore, unless of course it has to do with quantum physics - a subject I find fascinating.

Finally we are on the same wave length, Chris. I love this kind of trivia. Beats all the prosaic stuff that makes my eyes glaze over. If it wasn't for my budding interest in quantum physics my mind would really be stagnant.

Hummm. 2 versions of one response. How'd that happen? Must have something to do with quantum physics - with me shifting between parallel dimensions......

Cynique:

I have another possible explanation (beamed in through a wormhole from an alternate universe) but if I post it somebody will call me a sexist old barfly (crusty, but benign!)

Certainly you are not, at this stage of the game, exercising restraint, Chris. Bring it on.

ABM's Jumping the Shark Offerings:
* "The Cosby Show" - When Bill brought cousin "Pam" to the show
* "Cheers" - When "Sam" and "Rebecca" finally knocked-boots
* "Living Single" - When "Kyle" and "Max" knocked-boots (Yeah, I'm saying it: Erika Alexander killed 2 shows.)
* "New York Undercover" - When "Eddie" was killed
* "Frazier" - When the gun-shy "Miles" and ditzy "Daphne" professed their love for each other
* "Seinfeld" - When "Kramer" admitted his first name was "Cosmo"
* "The Parkers" - The 5 seconds into its very FIRST episode

and * "Martin" - When co-star Tisha Campbell sued star Martin Lawrence for sexually harrassment!
