Us Rating: ***

Emmy winner Melissa McCarthy (worlds away from her over-the-top Bridesmaids role) and stand-up comic Billy Gardell play the titular couple in this sitcom with a welcome twist: The lovebirds are heavyset and half-joke about self-esteem and food issues. Big laughs are rare, but the grounded stars make the journey enjoyable. (Warner, $45)
