Jump the shark!!!!!

Thanks to the Web site, I finally found the answer to a question that’s been bothering me for years. No, not about global warming. And not why Victoria Principal’s character Pamela Barnes Ewing dreamed a whole entire season of “Dallas.”

But, rather, what was the name of the song the Cosby’s lip-synched to for their grandparents’ anniversary on “The Cosby Show.” I finally found the answer on!

Sorry. I’ll try to contain myself.

"Jump the Shark" is a term that refers to a defining moment on a television show where you realize the show has reached it’s peak. Such as when Fonzie jumped the shark on “Happy Days”.

For those with inquiring minds, the song I was trying to find is “(Night Time is) The Right Time,” by the great Ray Charles. My head’s bopping to the music as I type this. If I start lip-synching, though, the editors are going to send me home. (Hmmmm … there’s an idea …)

Lots of fun stuff on that Web site, so be sure to check it out!
