This week's schedule

There's fewer musical performances this week for our Music On TV feature as Last Call with Carson Daly has officially ceased showing its reruns as the highly anticipated premiere of the new late night show A Little Late with Lilly Singh on NBC is set to air beginning Monday. Performances to look out for this week on the familiar shows include Fitz and The Tantrums on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Wednesday. Before then, Sheryl Crow will be on The Late Late Show with James Corden (Monday) and the Americana singer/songwriter with four Grammy Awards Joy Williams will be on Today (Tuesday).

Another notable showing on Today is Friday's performance from the pop rock duo Rembrandts. Pop singer/songwriter Shawn Mendes will be performing on an encore Saturday Night Live to accompany actor Adam Sandler while this week's Austin City Limits showing on Sunday will be a rerun of Willie Nelson performing his hits from album "My Way" earlier this year on Jan 26.

Here's the complete rundown. Check your local listings for broadcast times.*
