Welcome to the female ponderous-a, Hoss. Three superhefty sisters (Wendie Jo Sperber, Lesley Boone and Susan Peretz) share a cramped Manhattan apartment in this raunchy sitcom.

This trio attacks the material—nonstop food, fat and sex jokes—with fervor, and the ancillary characters are funny. Like Married... with Children, the show wallows happily in vulgarity. But its in-your-face energy never flags.
