I'm actually stunned they would hype an announcement everybody already knew and so many dreaded. I was a fool to expect anything better.

So that's what jumping the shark means!

It's a reference to American network tv staple HAPPY DAYS (starring a young Ron Howard and Henry WInkler as "THE FONZ")

When the shows ratings dropped off they did numerous silly contrived ideas...and in one instance the FONZ does a stunt where on water skis... he literally jumps over a shark.... apparently to save his respect among his peers as "such a baddass guy"


contrived.... stupid plot bends in order to garner new viewers or keep the old ones...

Better reference:

If it wasn't the shark then it was those garbage cans he jumped and then dumped his bike!
