You see a lot of all ill-matched couples on TV shows, particularly sitcoms. Don't you? It has become a kind of tradition that at least one couple on a show should look awkward, with the wife being skinny and smoking-hot, and husband looking like a blobfish! Think of any popular sitcom wife, and we bet she looks gorgeous! We also bet she has a fat or ugly guy as a husband. It seems like the society, media or people find it acceptable for a fat guy to be in the lead role, but not a fat woman to play the same! How often do you see fat women in TV shows, playing lead or serious roles? The ill-matched couples are not just limited to live-action sitcoms; you can find them even on animated shows! Let's not go deeper into the subject, but quickly check these 12 greatest fat guys - hot wife couples on TV shows. 
1.Carl & Harriette Winslow - Family Matters

In 1989, the world was taken over by Steve Urkel, a geeky nerd played by Jaleel White, on the hit show, Family Matters. He was in love with his neighbor, Laura Winslow and was frequently at the home of the Winslows. The Winslow family was headed by an overweight cop, Carl Winslow, played by Reginald VelJohnson, and his stern but loving wife, Harriette Winslow, played by JoMarie Payton. Carl's mother lived there, and so did Harriette's sister.
Carl and Harriette Winslow were show's lead couple. Carl was a tough cop, but definitely wasn't one of those fit-looking men. He was a fat man. His wife wasn't that fat though.

Still Standing is one of the best modern sitcoms. The TV series highlights the life of a working class couple Bill & Judy Miller. Bill Miller is a salesperson at a toilet store. Judy is a dental assistant. The couple were high school sweethearts. Together, they have three children.   
Bill Miller is a fat guy. He is neither a handsome guy nor has a smart mind. However, he woos and lures Judy into marrying him. Judy, on the other hand, is a beautiful woman. People received the show well, but a few people complained that the makers of the show were trying to make fat men more acceptable in the society, but not fat women.

3.Harry & Charlotte Goldenblatt - sex And The City

This pair is another good example of ill-matched pairs on TV series. Harry and Charlotte Goldenblatt are a prominent couple from the Sex and the City TV series. The couple is little weird for many reasons. Their love story is cute, though. Harry Goldenblatt is a weird-looking fat guy with a bald head. He looks little gross. Hey, we aren't saying this! Charlotte York (Goldenblatt) said this on many occasions on the show. 
Harry wasn't an upper-class socialite like Charlotte's first husband, but she still fell for him. When he walks around her apartment naked and sits on her white sofa, we think it may not work, but it does, and they end up marrying each other! In fact, she loved him so much that she converted into Harry's religion to marry him. 
Kristine Davis played the Charlotte Goldenblatt role, and Even Handler played the Harry Goldenblatt role.

8.Doug & Carrie Heffernan - King Of Queens

Doug and Carrie Hefferman are the lead couple of the TV series The King of Queens. Doug Hefferman is an ordinary parcel delivery man. He is a simple and nice guy, and prefers watching sports and playing poker. His wife Carrie Hefferman is a secretary at a law firm. They are a married couple from the very beginning of the show. 
Doug is a fat guy. He's not particularly ugly but is a huge guy. The pair is clearly a mismatch, as Carrie Hefferman is a small and lovely woman. The show is heavily dependent on the appearance difference between the two characters. A good looking pair might not have delivered the humor like the couple did.
Kevin James and Leah Remini played Doug and Carrie Hefferman roles respectively.
