The original Roseanne and anything with John Goodman, Chris Farley, Rebel Wilson or Malissa McCarthy in it (to name a few).
Chris Farley is an absolute legend of comedy. Every so often I’ll rewatch Tommy Boy or his SNL anthology.

Ditto Malissa McCarthy, too. She’s got looks, she’s got jokes. Gilmore Girls is a good show anyway, but she definitely improved it.

And if we’re talking about men, Jeff Garlin as the father of the titular Goldbergs is consistently funny.

Can't believe I forgot this: Downton Abbey has Lesley Nicol as Mrs. Patmore, the estate's chubby head cook. That show has a great cast, Mrs. Nicol definitely included. imdb says she auditioned to be Mrs. Weaseley in the first Harry Potter movie, too; that would've been interesting to see.

The Good Wife has some large women in the last season. Margot Martindale plays a non-comedic role as a campaign manager .
There is also an episode in the last season with a SSBBW getting deposed but I couldn't find it on Wikipedia. It seems to me Julie Margulis was getting sensitive to sizism the last season which lead her to do Dietland.

It may not have been the central element but was a fan of drop dead diva when it was on. The lead actress (Brooke Elliot) is gorgeous!

She seemed like she'd be fun in the sack.

Heffer
Appearing throughout the show, Heffer is a typically clueless character, although many times his 'street smarts' have gotten him out of trouble, despite the times those same smarts have caused nothing but problems. Heffer tends to be the center for any fat jokes made on the show, he usually takes it in stride.
