Chabad Telethon and Conan: Which jumped the Shark?

Triumph the Insult Comit Dog made an appearance on the Chabad Telethon .... really.

'Jumping the Shark' "is a colloquialism coined by Jon Hein and used by TV critics and fans to denote the point in a television program's history where the plot veers off into absurd story lines or out-of-the-ordinary characterizations. This usually corresponds to the point where a show with falling ratings apparently becomes more desperate to draw in viewers. In the process of undergoing these changes, the TV or movie series loses its original appeal. Shows that have "jumped the shark" are typically deemed to have passed their peak."

So Chabad Telethon or Conan, for which was this move jumping the shark?
