It's pretty easy if you're a morning person to follow on the weekends.
ESPN Soccernet blows for commentary, but what they do have that's nice is their live score shows all of the times for the matches in EST/CST/whatever you're in, so you can go over a few days and figure when you need to get up/watch it.
Bundesliga usually has a 8:30-9:00 game. They then have a 10 and sometimes a 1-2 o'clock game on the weekends, Saturday and Sunday.
EPL, 7:30/8:00 game on Saturday, 9:30-10:00 games, then an 11:30-12:00 game. Sunday is usually one earlier 8:30-9, then an 11ish game (usually match of the week type of a deal) and then a Monday 3:00 game.
Mid week games for Champions League (Tuesday/Wednesday) and Europa League Thursday.
Italy's pretty much the same, though often they do night games (which are more afternoon start for us).
Spain's later in the afternoon, usually 1 or 2 for most of the starts on weekend, and 3 for weekdays.
Steve Goff for the Soccer Insider in the Post is probably the best in the business. He posts a weekend soccer listings on Thursday/Friday (pending on how many games) with TV listings and times. He's easily the best Post sports beat writer, and vastly underrated.
