Does MLS even have a TV contract?

Yep. It currently has national contracts with ESPN, Fox and (I believe) Galavision. Next year, the Fox deal expires and it will have a new contract with NBC, with 2 games on NBC proper and 6 on NBC Sports (the rebranded Versus).

But your point stands - in terms of TV viewership and rights, the NBA crushes MLS. Not even close.
