Following Survival Sunday, fans get their first look of what the soccer TV schedule will look like throughout the end of spring and upcoming summer. In short, it isn't pretty. Fans in the United States will have just a handful of games to watch leading up to Champions League Final Saturday. The upcoming midweek isn't a total bust, however, especially if you spent some extra money in order to watch all Major League Soccer games on TV or computer. MLS teams are featured in three games, games that take place on Tuesday and Wednesday.
