From my perspective, watching talk-shows in English is a perfect way to learn this language, because it is not only entertaining but informative as well, thus you realize two goals through a single action.
I have made out a list of the talk-shows that I like and often watch. Hope, it will come in handy.
- The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon (the USA).
The show opens with Fallon’s topical monologue, then transitions into comedic sketches/games, concluding with a guest interview and musical performance. The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon has attracted high ratings since its 2014 premiere, consistently beating competition. In addition, many moments from the series have originated viral videos. Following the monologue, the main segments are a mix of interviews and performances—examples of the latter include musical impressions, lip-syncing contests, games of Pictionary and egg Russian roulette.
- The Ellen DeGeneres Show (the USA).
The program combines comedy, games, celebrity, musical guests and human-interest stories. The program often features audience participation games where prizes are awarded.
- The Graham Norton Show (British).
A British comedy chat show broadcast on BBC One in the United Kingdom.

An American late-night talk show hosted by James Corden on CBS. Carpool Karaoke and Talking Mentalist episodes are especially popular.
