This week's schedule

Jade Bird makes her second-ever appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon this week (her first time on the program was on April 3, 2018), while Jimmy Kimmel Live! sees performances by Weezer, Christine and the Queens and Lizzo.

The updated lineup of The Lumineers will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Wednesday night. The Lumineers have added violinist/vocalist Lauren Jacobsen to their roster; Jacobson takes the spot vacated by cellist and singer Neyla Pekarek, who left the band in 2018 to pursue a solo career.

A highly notable rerun this week is the encore of Austin City Limits featuring sets by Kacey Musgraves and Lukas Nelson, which originally aired in November 2018.
