Someone over at Yahoo T.V. deserves an award for sitting through some of the lamest plots and dumbest "twists" to ever hit the ol' boob tube. Here's a preview:
It happens to the best of television shows. After a few strong seasons, a series takes a wrong turn that fans find unforgiveable. This is known as the moment the show "jumped the shark." Sometimes it's just one goofy episode, like on "Happy Days" when Fonzie competed in a water skiing competition during which he had to pull off the ridiculous stunt of jumping over a shark (hence the phrase). Other times, it can be an entire plot shift that completely ruins the show. Remember when the working-class Conner family won the lottery and "Roseanne" became unwatchable? Click through this slideshow to see which current shows we think have officially jumped the shark.
My hubby and I have two shows on this list. I am just glad someone else noticed and now I have a name for it.
