With Children" at 9:30 p.m. Sunday on Channel 11, a quasi-spinoff that reeks with the raunch of the older show's Bundy clan, but inherits not a whiff of its humor. The main protagonists are the Verduccis: illiterate Vinnie (Matt LeBlanc) and Vinnie's boorish father, Charles (Joe Bologna). Vinnie was introduced on "Married . . .
