"Jumping the shark' is defined as being a noticeable moment where a show starts to decline and it's obvious the show will be cancelled. There are many possibilities that cause this moment, often it's a gimmick as an attempt to get ratings.

Even though in Season 5, they did do some things to try to boost their ratings, in my opinion the show's quality did not decline. Season 5 had some of the best episodes in he entire series. All shows do go through change, so it's not unreasonable to think that Quantum Leap shouldn't grow and evolve.

So since the show in my opinion did not decline in quality, I therefore believe that the show did not jump the shark.
