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.

80 I know that it's been quite some time since this comment was made (by Chrissy on July 13, 2009), but my favorite comment on the old Scottish Site was on the "TRL: Total Request Live" page, somebody said, "MTV=Marketing Television!" And, I liked it when people called Nickelodeon "MTV Jr!" Yeah, this webstie will be missed. Shame on you, Scottish Sellout. :-( -- Submitted By: (SVN) on February 5, 2010, 8:43 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
81 I have never visited that Cod-omized site again. I haven't been there in months, and I will never go there again. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 2, 2010, 2:14 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
82 Wow I just stopped by the "SITE THAT SHALL NOT BE NAMED"- what a trainwreck, no new content in a month, and no user comments- the level of drivel and tabloid crap is even worse than it was 6 months ago. What a disgrace! -- Submitted By: (Chubby Rain) on February 2, 2010, 12:32 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
83 I am more upset that TVGuide threw $10 million in the trash and would love to know who made that call. There must have been some great marketing meeting where somebody in an overpriced suit convinced them that all of the followers would still follow them to the new blog site after they got rid of all of that JTS content. If TVGuide was smart, they would have embraced JTS and its followers and made it better. Really, who reads TV guide anyway and who even knew they had a website? If they embraced JTS, they could have JTS plus a thriving gossip site. Now they have neither. Could they really be concerned that people criticizing their shows on this site is hurting their sales? Are there really people THAT STUPID at TVGuide? Apparently so. -- Submitted By: (DavidSilverlight) on January 4, 2010, 3:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
84 I had not went to JTS for over a year, so I figured, just to pass some time, to check it out and look up some stuff. TV Guide, you bastards! -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on December 6, 2009, 9:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
85 When it stopped being a website similar to this one, and became some stupid celebrity blog. -- Submitted By: (Mr.Bill) on November 23, 2009, 6:46 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
86 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
87 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

89 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
90 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
91 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

93 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
94 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
