Did Happy Days really jump the shark when it jumped the shark? Maybe Not

First Person: In defense of the 'Happy Days' ' 'Jump the Shark' episode - latimes.com:

"Which brings us to the question: Was the 'Hollywood 3' episode of 'Happy Days' deserving of its fate?

No, it wasn't. All successful shows eventually start to decline, but this was not 'Happy Days'' time. Consider: It was the 91st episode and the fifth season. If this was really the beginning of a downward spiral, why did the show stay on the air for six more seasons and shoot an additional 164 episodes? Why did we rank among the Top 25 in five of those six seasons?"
