Jump the shark is a pop culture phrase that means a product's quality has started to decline. The term originates from the TV show "Happy Days," and is commonly used to describe TV shows that have stupid plot twists and story lines.
In "Happy Days," Fonzie (played by Henry Winkler) literally jumps a shark while water skiing. It was an absurd storyline and marked the decline of the show. Critics adopted the saying and it grew in popularity. Also, many years after playing Fonzie, Henry Winkler jumped a shark a second time when he played Barry Zuckerkorn in the TV show "Arrested Development."
