About SharkJumping

Hosts Tim & Beth break down the best, worst and strangest TV shows to find out when they jumped the shark.


  1. I was so excited for this. Hairspray is my all-time favorite musical. Ever since Sound of Music, I’ve watched the NBC live musical. I felt this production had a lot issues– for example, I noticed that peoples’ mics cut out a lot during the show– but I enjoyed this one despite its flaws.

  2. Looking forward to the rest of your commentary!

  3. All I can say about this was I’m glad had to work late and missed this. Why the heck did they have to copy Grease: Live?! We did NOT need to see them on the go carts and see the audience! Let’s hope they go back to the way they were next year when they do Bye Bye Birdie.
