I'm not worried about Bones. From the sounds of it, it will be purely satirical. It won't be worshipping Jersey Shore. And the show has lost no dignity.

Bones do not need stunts to sell the show it can do that as it is, so I am sure that it will be done without compromising itself

That show sounds like a bad idea, especially now that the tide has turned given the news that's been coming out as of late.
