* The creation of Indominus rex in ''Film/JurassicWorld'' is fueled by the executive's desire to attract new visitors, and counteract the Park's lower entry rate. This is lampshaded by one park goer.

* {{Wrestling/WCW}}:
** WCW was doing more than scaring the shit out of WWE, they were soundly beating them in the ratings until they started to slip in '99 and got desperate enough to give Wrestling/VinceRusso free reign to run everything. [[WriterOnBoard Fourth-wall breakages and non-wrestlers beating up the stars]]: such a desperate counter-maneuver. They also gave Wrestling/HulkHogan creative control, which led to the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fingerpoke_of_Doom Fingerpoke of Doom.]]

*** Were it not for the fact this was the last ever CSI* episode, the contrived return of Grissom, after never appearing in person since he left the show, could itself be an example of this trope. This gives his remark an ironic hint of [[Genre Savvy]] and possibly [[Breaking the Fourth Wall]]. On top of that the Grissom/Sidle shippers get to see the show finish with them [[Riding into the Sunset]] (well, sailing). (*CSI: Cyber doesn't count: it has nothing to do with CSIs.)

** In the ''RockyIV'' review, where [[MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext a completely ridiculous robot]] that drives in is introduced as the Shark-Jumper 5000, and the introduction of GameBoy in the commentary for the ''WesternAnimation/CaptainNTheGameMaster'' review.

* A show set in a normal setting has aliens appear suddenly in an episode (like what they did with ''Happy Days''.)



* One episode of ''WesternAnimation/DoraTheExplorer'' had Dora use Jump Star to "jump the shark".



-->'''Troy [=McClure=]:''' That's it for our spinoff showcase. But what about the show that started it all? How do you keep "The Simpsons" fresh and funny after eight long years? Well, here's what's on tap for season nine: Magic powers! Wedding after wedding after wedding. And did someone say, "long-lost triplets?" So join America's favorite TV family, and [[WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones a tiny green space alien named Ozmodiar that only Homer can see]], on FOX this fall. It'll be out of this world! Right, Ozmodiar?

** One of the ClipShow episodes featured a song lampshading both clip shows and the sort of absurd plots that normally constitute a shark jump, [[http://i651.photobucket.com/albums/uu231/firewaller/Trolls/homer-jump-shark.jpg complete with a still image of Homer on waterskis]].

* ''Series/Moonlighting'', season 4 episode one. The series went almost immediately from being a romantic comedy about two people running a detective agency together to a drama about two people who almost never interacted, constantly drifted away from each other, and didn't actually do much detective work... or anything, really, apart from being depressed about their (inexplicably now failing) romance. It remained that way for the entire 4th season and never really recovered (though it improved somewhat in Season 5).
This list shows the last 10 events of 248. Show all.
