Video: Video: TIL that the term Jumping The Shark was derived from the show Happy Days, when the Fonz was dared to jump over a shark with water skis. Symbolising the turnoff point for a lot of viewers.

Ever hear someone say that a tv show "jumped the shark", implying that they've created an outrageous episode to try and win back viewers? Wonder where it came from? If you weren't alive in the 70s, it's possible you really don't know where that term came from. Well, this is it! We do not own, nor do we claim to own this video nor the rights to the show Happy Days. This video is for review purposes only. No copyright infringement is intended.
