Jump the Shark

The term "jump the shark" is a popular expression for the point where a TV show has passed its prime and is on the decline. The term is derived from a "Happy Days" episode where Fonzie water skis over a shark, thus marking the beginning of the show's steep decline. In this quiz we'll look at shows primarily from the 1970's and the point at which they "jumped the shark.”
