Happy Days, The Love Boat, Dynasty, Married With Children...the guy has ruined so many programs--or has been recruited in so many unsuccessful last-ditch attempts to salvage already-ruined TV programs--that he has his own category on JumpTheShark.com.
So now it's been announced that Ted, the "patron saint of sharkjumping," will be a cast member on the upcoming season of Dancing With The Stars.
What's next? Is Darren #2 from Bewitched going to sign up? (Yes, I KNOW both Bewitched Darrens have passed away, people; I'm just trying to make a point.) What about Bo from Welcome Back Kotter or baby Andy from Family Ties or Oliver from The Brady Bunch? They're all still alive, and probably not doing much these days...
And then happy days will be here again.
