The series follows babes a trio of plump siblings who had other things on their mind besides their weight: like work, relationships, popularity, and starting a family. The ladies also shared a small one-bedroom apartment in New York City, which added to the comic friction.

I can remember as a little kid watching this very short-lived series. In fact, we had the pilot episode recorded and have watched it several times.

Unfortunately it seems that FOX has an uncanny ability to dump the good shows and keep the ridiculous ones.
