Jump the SharkI happened upon Jump the Shark last night when I was trying to prove to my kids that “Courageous Cat & Minute Mouse” really existed. (“The frog see? Nyah, nyah nyah…”)

Jump the Shark is a term for that defining moment when a television show hits its peak, and it’s all downhill from there. Like when Cousin Oliver met the Brady Bunch, or when Scrappy Doo joined Scooby Doo. When the cast of 90210 graduated from high school, or when Lucy & Ricky moved to Connecticut. They have a database of over 2,500 tv shows, and every one we looked up was there. People vote on if/when they think a show has “jumped the shark.”

Watch out – it’s addictive…
