urx unit loader 'Modern Family': The return of Fizbo the Clown

If you’ve seen the on-air promos for Wednesday’s (Feb. 16) “Modern Family,” then you know that Cameron (Eric Stonestreet) is itching to re-assume the identity of Fizbo the Clown.

Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson), however, is not really down with the idea, as you can see in the clip above. And for once, we think the often-uptight Mitchell may have a point: Lily’s dad should be there as her dad, not as the entertainment.

It’s probably not that simple — because where’s the comedy in that? — but we’re looking forward to seeing how it goes down. The episode, “Princess Party,” also features a returning Shelley Long as Mitchell and Claire’s (Julie Bowen) mom, DeDe, and Matt Dillon as Claire’s high-school boyfriend, whom DeDe invites to the birthday party.

“Modern Family” airs at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.
