Name 10 Shows which lasted 3 seasons or longer for which good arguments
could be made that they NEVER jumped the Shark.
2. The Simpsons
3. Night Court
4. Everybody Loves Raymond
5. Barney Miller (168 episodes and it never failed... it even survived losing Abe Vigoda to a badly considered spinoff, that's how solid the core show was
6. Farscape (Ended FAR too soon!)
7. South Park (assuming you can stand the show in the first place, its never changed its core values or been significantly changed by its success....)
The above is a controversial choice, I know, because you have to like the show in the first place (and some people virulently hate it) to agree with the notion that somehow, after 11 years the creators are still doing their thing in the same spirit, and with the same originality and cleverness that they always did. If you hate the show, you won't care its the same as it always was... you'll simply think it was always bad.
