Plenty of people would argue that Jesse fits that bill rather well. Plenty of people here stopped watching the show because Jesse was such a bad addition to the team in their mind.

Adding a character no one likes is called Pulling a Cousin Oliver not Jumping the Shark. For example The Brady Bunch really pulled a cousin oliver when they added Cousin Oliver.

I'm sorry but adding a character to a show is not ridiculous in any way.

That character is a character in a show, in a show, used provide commentary on shows that jump the shark by adding stupid new characters because the makers feel the show is growing stale. You're just upset that I totally proved you wrong.

wikipedia wrote:Jumping the shark is an idiom used to denote when a particular production effort has surpassed its relevance and reached a point of decline in quality that it is incapable of recovering from. It refers specifically to the point in a television program's history where the plot spins off into absurd storylines, unlikely characterizations, and adding or replacing characters. These changes were often the result of efforts to revive interest in a show whose audience had begun to decline.

Any mention of Supernatural on my part, is fodder for you to bash me not watching the two best episodes in the series. Sort of like getting face plunged.
