Similar to jump the shark, the phrase eat the shark refers to the point where a television show is no longer any good and the main character becomes fat.

Sabrina, the Teenage Witch ate the shark when Sabrina went to college. The show was no longer enjoyable and Sabrina became fat.
It's quite a bummer when shows eat the shark.
