When did the Ferengi go from "serious" villains to just comic relief

Most people around here know that the Ferengi were originally supposed to be serious villains when TNG started, but they didn't work out in that role and were eventually demoted to comedic relief.

When do you think that change in roles happened, was it when DS9 went on the air or was it sooner then that? Perhaps this change of roles happened near the end of season 3 of TNG, with the episode "Ménage à Troi"?
