CBS (Fridays, 8 P.M. ET)


The title refers to the three women who share a Manhattan penthouse. There’s the Jewish-American princess (Cadillac Man’s Fran Drescher), the WASP variety of same (Julie [What About Bob?] Hagerty), and the one who married into a genuine if obscure pedigree (Twiggy Lawson, the ’60s modeling sensation, who has adopted her married surname).

After laboring in the pilot to establish how the trio end up in these lush digs together, the series can’t seem to find traction. The humor is stale (“Give us your tired, your poor, your muddled asses,” Twiggy malaprops, misquoting Emma Lazarus), and the situations are brittle.

On the plus side, the stars banter deftly, and Drescher’s crass materialist—all fingernails and nasal whine—is absolutely delicious.
