FATHER'S DAY Tess (Mary-Kate, right) and Emily (Ashley) do something nice for ''Dad'' (Amandes)

Why we'd skip Mary-Kate and Ashley's ''Billboard Dad''

PREDICAMENT The Tyler girls rent a Santa Monica billboard to get their widowed dad (Tom Amandes) a date.

MARY-KATE PLAYS Tess, an avid diver

ASHLEY PLAYS Emily, who flips for boys

FASHION STATEMENT Poolside pretty: sports sandals, wetsuits, and trendy hooded sweatshirts

WHY WE'D SKIP IT The fact that the tweens were still in their ''Full House'' troll-doll phase isn't something they should have been advertising. But because they had to endure growing up in the public eye, we'll let them off without rubbing their hair between our hands.
