This one is called прямой эфир which means Live Television. Another similar and popular one in Russia is called пусть говорят (Let them talk). Roosh appeared on a similar show in Ukraine. Think Russian Jerry Springer but with less fighting and more talking. They generally speak very clearly and not about something metaphysical that would confuse you.

Useful conversational language. Generally Russian and Ukrainian reality Tv has been quite helpful for my Russian, and easy watching. Be careful if the show is Ukrainian, because often I've noticed that contestants will speak in Surzhyk, which is like a blend of RU and UKR languages, which gets confusing.

Great stuff; not in terms of the content but at least the vocab they use; it's reassuring that I'm able to understand pretty much every word they say, but I just can't put it together fast enough to actually understand the larger context of what they're saying. That's definitely the next step.

Unrelated, has anyone had any experience with the Living Language series? I was walking in the bookstore today and saw it next to all the usual suspects: Pimsleur, MT, Rosetta Stone, MT, etc.
