What To Watch This Week: A Double Dose Of Van Der Beek And More!

What’s not to love about a week with a double dose of James Van Der Beek? The “Dawson’s Creek” vet will first make his usual appearance on “Don’t Trust The B—- In Apartment 23” (Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. ET on ABC). The following day, Van Der Beek will appear as a guest star on “Law And Order: Special Victims Unit” (Wednesday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC).

In finale news, “In Plain Sight” airs its final episode ever on Friday on USA, which sees Mary caught between her “model” witness and an unexpected family reunion. And “GCB” also ends its first season on Sunday on ABC.

The rest of weekend also offers a few reasons to stay home on the couch. On Saturday, it’s SyFy’s one night only movie event with “Treasure Island.” The new spin on the classic tale features an all-star cast led by Eddie Izzard, Elijah Wood and Donald Sutherland. And on Sunday, “The Comedy Awards” air with big names like Chris Rock, Will Arnett, Tracy Morgan, Maya Rudolph, Adam Scott and Jon Stewart presenting.
