Fonzie jumping the shark Financial wellness has been labeled “hot” for so long, one wonders if it hasn’t reached the point where it, too, has jumped the shark.

There comes a time in every popular television series when fans decide “enough is enough” and viewership begins the slow decline towards cancellation. This is usually precipitated by an over-hyped event. For the hit show Happy Days, this event occurred when Fonzie jumped the shark. So infamous has this event become that the term “jumped the shark” has entered the lexicon to denote when anything has peaked.
