Us Rating: **1/2

Sadly, the sublime sitcom fails to live up to its tip-top standards in this week's lark. Phil (Ty Burrell) decides to hawk his real-estate biz by plastering photos of Claire (Julie Bowen) and the kids on the family van -- leading passersby to construe that the Dunphy women are hookers. Come on. Tired double entendres ensue, and the pedophilia jokes will make viewers squirm. At least Bowen brings home the ending gag with ace timing. (ABC, 9 P.M.)
