The term "jump the shark" is used to describe a moment when something that was once great has reached a point where it will now decline in quality. This moment is usually marked by a scene or event which is so ridiculous and out of character for the show that it obviously a desperate grab for ratings. The term was coined in describing an episode of Happy Days (1974) where a water-skiing Fonzie, wearing his trademark leather jacket, jumped over a shark tank. 

Which of these "jump the shark" moments is the worst?

I'm only doing primetime TV shows, so I only added Family Guy.

Shark Week starts in a few days - it could be great to run this poll then!
