I'm lucky if once in a while I can catch some matches from Argentina on ESPN Intl, now and then. Not much Latin TV round here only Univision (basic cable), that only seems to air Sabado Gigante, bad soap operas and Cristina!

Actually that is a segment of a show called 'Videomatch', which for well over a decade aired on Telefe. It's now called 'Showmatch' on Network 9.
I really can't tell you how to get clips of it, maybe by contacting the network at www.telefe.com, you can see if they can get them to you. But I would not be surprised if there was some DVD collection out there (or one coming in the future), I just haven't looked around for it, next time I'm out shopping I'll keep a look out.
There was another segment they did called 'El padre de la novia', it is perhaps the simplest yet funniest prank ever. They set up cameras inside a family home, where a father is pranked by his own teenage daugther and his wife to meet the girl's 'new' boybriend (an actor), which turns out to always be the biggest lazybum, doesn't work or go to school, drinks too much, and bosses the guy's wife around to bring him food. Now that is a hillarious bit...
