This week's schedule

Halloween is this week on Thursday, and James Corden is bringing none other than the devilishly thrilling group Hollywood Vampires for that special day's musical performance on The Late Late Show with James Corden. The day before the spooky holiday, English electronic pop singer/songwriter FKA Twigs — who recently released her single "Home with You" earlier this month and will be coming out with a new album Magdalene on November 8 — will be performing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. American country singer/songwriter Miranda Lambert will be performing on both Wednesday and Thursday, the days leading up to the release of her latest album Wildcard, on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Late Night with Seth Meyers respectively.

A performance by Coldplay, the British rock band who just released two singles "Arabesque" and "Orphans" from their new album, Everyday Life, will be on Saturday Night Live alongside Twilight actress host Kristin Stewart. Meanwhile, the weekend brings sets from Patty Griffin and The Revivalists to Austin City Limits on PBS.
