A defining moment when you know that your favorite television program has reached its peak. That instant that you know from now on...it's all downhill. Some call it the climax. We call it "Jumping the Shark." From that moment on, the program will simply never be the same. he term "jump the shark" was coined by site founder Jon Hein's college roommate of 4 years, Sean J. Connolly, in Ann Arbor, Michigan back in 1985. This web site, book, film, and all other material surrounding shark jumping, are hereby dedicated to "the Colonel." The aforementioned expression refers to the telltale sign of the demise of Happy Days, our favorite example, when Fonzie actually "jumped the shark." The rest is history. Jumping the shark applies not only to TV, but also music, film, even everyday life. We invite you to comment when any show jumped the shark.

79 The worst, most infuriating and frustrating thing about the TV Guide replacement is that in place of the wonderfully interactive JTS site, it wasn't possible to even send a message to those snobs who ran the site to ask where the old site went. It just seemed like complete cowardice, as if they knew they'd get a hostile reaction and didn't care one bit, and so closed the door on and dismissed anyone who wanted their say on the matter. It disgusts me to be honest. -- Submitted By: (Tanlee) on November 13, 2009, 5:54 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
80 Why, Tv Guide, why?! I no longer love you; you lost the charm that you had back when Frank Costanza collected all your copies. Well, now you are dead to me! Banished! In an icy grave! Do ya hear that? Such blasphemy it is ruining one of my favorite sites! Some of the best times of my teenage years, swept away! And alas, I have nothing to remember them by, as it is near impossible to retrieve the old footage, filled with my sometimes snarky, sometimes saccharine musings. The tables shall turn on you, TvG, as your printed edition is slowly (but surely) fading away into the mists of time! Karma is a bad thing, my friend! -- Submitted By: (Puggy) on November 12, 2009, 10:25 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

82 How fitting is it that a magazine that Jumped The Shark buys JumpTheShark and causes it to Jump The Shark? -- Submitted By: (TheTruth) on October 30, 2009, 9:20 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
83 Hey, even the "New York Times" is ticked about the Jump the Shark change: http://mediadecoder.blogs.nytimes.com/2009/08/10/shark-week-or-jump-the-shark-week/ Hint: It's the 5th paragraph! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on October 12, 2009, 8:49 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
84 Just took at a look this morning at the bloated corpse that is "Jump the Shark"- it looks worse each time I see it- what a disgrace. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on October 11, 2009, 12:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

86 In the end, JtS became what it was mocking. Thank goodness for BtF, because there's no way I'm going to spend any time trying to find the old posts at that awful TV Guide shit stain. Apparently, nothing is sacred anymore. -- Submitted By: (JLer2562) on September 14, 2009, 10:24 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
87 I have never seen a Website ruined in such a short order! When I first saw the new design I first thought the Website went down for some reason...then I tried to navigate the thing and found self advertising, self advertising and even more selv advertising. The name of the site used to tell us what the theme of the site is...now it tells us, what the site itself is! -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 5, 2009, 2:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

92 I just found this place today. It's nice to find that the crowd that used to frequent JTS has found a new home. Fortunately, I kept my own personal copies of the content I sent to "the place that shall not be named", and I'll start putting them up in the appropriate places here. -- Submitted By: (Eugene) on July 23, 2009, 12:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
93 Here is the last comment on there... For some reason, my wonderful poem was deleted. As a favor to readers, let me re-post it: There once was a fella named Timmy Molloy Who suits up in Radnor did choose to employ. Their mission was clear; their mission was dark They wanted to "fix" the site "Jump the Shark." And Timmy obeyed, just like sheep in their flocks; He'd seen what had happened to poor Erin Fox. So change it they did, like a prince to a frog They turned it into a "what's on TV" blog. A once proud, great site, now but , alas, it's gone dark C'mon, TV Guide, give us back "Jump the Shark!" I made a few changes, for the better, I think you'll agree. Bye! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 22, 2009, 10:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
94 I noticed that the JTS site has still no new content? Also all of the recent comments about JTS sucking have been removed from the last TV blog "article" Really makes you wonder what is going on at this trainwreck! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 22, 2009, 10:07 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
95 I'd pay cash money to know what is going on at the Scottish Site, I bet some people ahve gotten fired, and you have to wonder if BONE THE FISH" was mentioned at their satan worshipping corporate meetings. -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 19, 2009, 7:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
96 Wow I went to take a peek and everything is gone the blog stuff is gone! -- Submitted By: (kitchenbreak) on July 18, 2009, 9:26 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
97 Just went over to the Scottish Site, what a MESS!!! There are no new gossip blogs and Erin Fox, the hatchet lady that wrote on there is gone. Fired? Can anyone figure this out? Also there are no comments there except people slamming the site, and there are very few of those. I wonder if all of the other user comments on the blog articles were TV Guide employees or bots? Check it out, it is really a sad and odd sight to behold, and a guy even wrote a poem on there!! Here it is...thanks A.S. MARTBOY (As published on the Scottish site..) As I was cutting the lawn yesterday, the rich history of this site moved me to poetry. I hope you enjoy it: There once was a man named Timmy Molloy Who people at Radnor did choose to employ. Their mission was clear; their mission was dark: "We'll go fix the site they call 'Jump the Shark.'" And Timmy assisted, like lambs in their flocks; He'd seen what had happened to poor Erin Fox. The suits made a change, like a prince to a frog They turned it into a "whats on TV" blog. But with 4 dismal comments, it's starting to fade It's been almost 2 weeks, no columns been made. Think of your ratings, please heed this remark: "C'mon, TV Guide, give us back "Jump the Shark!" Thank you. Thank you very much...... -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on July 15, 2009, 7:18 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
