    Yeah, they're not real sticklers for accuracy over at jumptheshark.com.

    I've noticed that on a lot of shows listed there. People just post their opinions, however misguided they may be. And whoever runs the site doesn't seem to care.

    I like the Jump The Shark website, and I read it alot.

    In one of the comments for The Muppet Show, it says that the muppet show jumped the shark when "they added that conductor guy to the band". I am assuming that they were talking about Nigel, although he was always conducting the orchestra. or maybe they were talking about Lips and got "trumpet player' mixed up with "conductor".

    They aren't always saying it's the producer's fault, they're just saying that after they died, the show started to go downhill, kinda like when Coach on Cheers died

    The blatent falsities in the responses of posters on JumptheShark calls the entire site's validity into question. If the people are judging these programs without any real knowledge of the shows themselves, how can there possibly be any credibility?

    Well with JtS, I often find I agree with the *majority* of reasons as to how a show's jumped the shark.

    I don't read the responses though. That would be an insult to my intelligence.

    it also seems that people are saying shows are horrible, and they're only referencing one episode to back them up, every show will have at least a couple not so great episodes, so I think people should wait to post until they know what they're talking about
