When the Brady Bunch introduced us to Cousin Oliver. They thought the brady kids had lost their cuteness and thought another young kid would bring back the magic. it failed

 

When Battlestar Galactica (1978)decided season 2 would be with the Galactica finding Earth and much of the story's would take place on Earth. Galactica 1980 was born and forgotten pretty quick. Not even the last eposide Return Of Starbuck could save it.

Angel - season five moving from the hotel and joining forces with Wolfram and Hart.

 

Prison Break - Breaking them out of prison. It was still a good show but it just wasnt as interesting anymore.

 

Lost - whatever episode that was about two characters that no one even knew. Actually most of season 3 jumped the shark.

 

Twin Peaks - solving the murder in season two and the pine weasel storyline. Hell most of season jumped the shark.

The first show that comes to mind is The Simpsons. If it hadn't already, it surely did when Homer became a grunge rocker. That episode was a disgrace.

I think the problems with The Simpsons started when in later years they started presenting Homer as a complete moron, compared to originally being an "average bloke".

How about the X-Files. when did it go beyond the point on no return?

 

 

When Duchovny left and they replaced him with the T-1000. :D

That episode was awesome!! It skewered absolutely everything that was wrong with the 1990s in under 30 minutes.

How'bout "Diff'rent Strokes," when Arnold started getting too old to do "cute kid" stuff anymore, Mr. Drummond got married and her son "Sam" became Arnold's new half brother and the new "cute kid"

 

... and of course, "Sam" aka Danny Cooksey grew up to be the lead singer for Bad 4 Good.

Danny was also on the Nickelodeon show Salute Your Shorts.

 

He could f'ng sing. Bad 4 Good might of looked like cute little kids but they cold really play and had some great tunes.

Speaking of XFiles above the true Shark Jumping happened after the Lone Gunmen series was cancelled and XFiles had them on for one last episode and they all three died. Very sad to see those guys go.

...if memory serves, the X-Files episode where they were killed off was even titled "Jumping the Shark."

 

...and hey, you remember what the first episode of the Lone Gunmen series was about? They had to stop an airliner from crashing into the World Trade Center. F*cking creepy in retrospect since it aired six months prior to 9/11.

Other "Shark Jumpings" ...

 

...when Jean Stapleton left "All in the Family," so they killed her off and the show became "Archie Bunker's Place" (though hey, the episode where Archie mourned Edith's death was a tear jerker of the highest order)

 

...when the "Facts of Life" girls graduated from the Academy and all went into the catering business with Mrs. Garrett.

 

..."Mork and Mindy" when Mork has a baby ("Mirth"), played by Jonathan Winters.
