The evenings are getting darker and colder, which can only mean it's the height of talk show season.

If you're having a quiet one, you have a decent selection of celebs for company this Friday, 5 October.

The Late Late Show

Ryan Tubridy will be joined by Hollywood star Jamie Lee Curtis, who's back once again to put her horror icon status to the test with the latest entry into the long-running Halloween series.

Curtis will be on hand to talk up that movie - a direct sequel to the original so you can forget the last 40 years of sequels and remakes - ahead of its release on 19 October.

Elsewhere, Amy Huberman will be in the RTÉ studio discussing her new comedy show Finding Joy and how she created this latest labour of love from scratch before bringing it to the screen.

Sharp funnyman Dara Ó Briain, meanwhile, intends to reveal the secret science behind everyday life from the minute you wake up until you go back to sleep.

Described as "the busiest man in Ireland", Francis Brennan will regale the audience with tales of his travels around the world in celebration of his book on that very subject.

Broadcaster Mary Kennedy joins Ryan to discuss her new approach to life after struggling with her work/life balance last year and how that led to her new book, Home Thoughts from the Heart.

All that and music from the acclaimed and award-winning SOAK and West End sensation Killian Donnelly.

The Graham Norton Show

If you happen to miss Jamie Lee Curtis on the Late Late, great news; she's hitting up Graham Norton's comfortable surroundings too.

Rowan Atkinson will also be propping up the couch as he reveals all about why Johnny English is back in cinemas, while Take That superstar Gary Barlow will be chatting about his new autobiography.

And that's not all; cult favourite eccentric Jeff Goldblum joins the fun to discuss his move into music, a venture he will back up with a performance alongside the one and only Imelda May.
