Jumping the shark

I love this phrase. My favourite definition from Urban Dictionary goes “when something stops getting better and starts getting worse”. It comes from a Happy Days episode where the Fonz goes waterskiing and jumps over a shark (presumably in a desperate attempt to boost ratings). Everyone agrees it was the lowest point of the show.

But what if Fonz didn’t jump the shark?
