* One installation of ''WebVideo/WatchMojo'' is a list on the "[[TopTenList Top 10]] TV Shows That Jumped the Shark". These include the following (with the reasons for such in parentheses): ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' (the GreatGazoo), ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' (CousinOliver), ''Series/{{Lost}}'' (time travel), ''Series/{{Roseanne}}'' (the Conners winning the lottery), ''Series/{{Dallas}}'' (the realization that season 9 was infamously AllJustADream), and, at #1 appropriately enough, ''Series/HappyDays'' (the Fonz jumping over a shark, the moment that spawned the trope to begin with).
** This also ranks at #4 on another list, the "Top 10 Signs a Show You Watch Is Going To Be Cancelled".

* Alternatively, the creators give in to pressure to make the material [[DarkerAndEdgier "edgier"]] even when such an approach doesn't fit the tone of the series.

* ''WebVideo/SharkJumping'' is dedicated to reviewing TV shows (such as ''SeriesHowIMetYourMother'', ''Series/{{Glee}}'', or ''WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents'') and occasionally even movies, trying to pinpoint the exact moment they jumped the shark.

Jumping the Shark is the moment when an established long-running series changes in a significant manner [[WereStillRelevantDammit in an attempt to stay fresh]]. Ironically, [[SelfFulfillingProphecy that moment makes the viewers realize that the show's finally run out of ideas]]. It's reached its peak, it'll never be the same again, and [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks from now on it's all downhill]]. It's DarthWiki/RuinedForever
