"Jumping the shark"

The term "Jumping the shark" has finally "jumped the shark." Kos jokes in the announement of an open thread that,

Hey, with C&J on the front page today, this site has so jumped the shark.

It's not that I don't like this blog (I fucking love it), but there's something about this particular usage of this already quite annoying phrase that just finally rendered it more bad than good. Perhaps it's the italicized 'so.' Feel free to use the comments section to describe the moment at which your favorite TV show/your life "jumped the shark."

Thanks to Jon Hein for the image.
