    Name 20 (()) TV Shows that debatably "jumped the shark" before ending. Bonus
    point for mentioning the "shark" moment.

    1. Happy Days (Fonzie jumped the shark (hey we had to have this one))
    2. The Brady Bunch (another old show almost as iconic as Happy Days for an
    exact moment where it was obvious the show was done for--the infamous
    introduction of "cousin Oliver").
    3. Grey's Anatomy (when Meredith fell into the water and "died" recently, she
    must have jumped over a small shark in Seattle -- I haven't watched it since.
    This one could be debatable, Krom.)
    4. Growing Pains (Birth of Chrissy)
    5. Mork & Mindy (Mork and Mindy--a "couple" which worked best because
    Mork didn't truly understand human sexuality--fall in love and get married.
    There was also specifically one terrible episode where Mork took Mindy to
    vacation on Planet ork).
    6. Married With Children (When Ted Ted McGinley -as with all shows hes
    'joined'- Joined the Cast)
    7. 24 (24 had a lot of "almost jumping" moments over the years--starting as
    early as Kim and her stupid Mountain Lion, but the place where the show
    completely and permanently came off the rails forever was when they
    revealed that Jack's family was responsible for every bad thing which ever
    happened. Anywhere. )
    8. Cheers (Diane leaving)
    9. Laverne and Shirley (moving to Cali)
    10. Will and Grace (Grace gets married and moves out, then back in, etc)
    11. ER (Doug Ross leaves. Everything after that was, in many ways, a rehash
    of the earlier years. Except for Shark Jump moment #2, when they needed a
    freaking helicopter to deal with Dr. Romano. Many might debate the show held
    out until that thing with Romano, but that did it in for those who put up with
    the post-Ross years otherwise)
    12. News Radio (When Phil Hartman died, it was a Sad, sad day in many
    ways, I loved him and loved this show.)**
    13. Days of Our Lives - (the Salem Slasher, and the forcefield shielded doppleganger Salem that followed)
    14. The Cosby Show (Pam, Claire's cousin, moves in)
    15. Roseanne (Winning the lottery)
    16. The OC (Death of Marissa)

    6. Farscape (Ended FAR too soon!)

    I do agree on Barney Miller, it was a great cast.. with some damn good writers!
