eSports watchers can plan ahead with the new MLG schedule.

Featuring all the League of Legends and StarCraft II action you could ask for, you can find all the information here at the MLG site, along with a nifty Google calendar.
As outlined in a press release today, broadcasts are scheduled for a regular 7pm ET start time:
