Need recommendations for a new TV show to watch

I dont have enough shows to watch right now to fulfill my couch potato appetite so I need some suggestions. I have access to virtually anything so there shouldn't be any limitations.

I'd prefer it be a current show, but anything that has started in the last 10 years or so is acceptable. I'm leaving out comedies since everyone's sense of humor varies greatly.

Some of my favorite shows in no particular order:

Breaking Bad
True Blood (except last 2 seasons)
Fargo
Boardwalk Empire
Game of Thrones
Bates Motel
American Horror Story (this last season was teh gay)
Hell on Wheels
Homeland
Justified
The Leftovers
Shameless
True Detective
Vikings
House of Cards
Dexter (except the last couple seasons)
Southland
Banshee
Deadwood
The Sopranos
Silicon ValleyThe Tudors
Six Feet Under
Rome

Shows that I watch or have watched occasionally but could take them or leave them:


The Walking Dead
Tyrant
Orange is the New Black
Under the Dome
Sherlock
The Wire
Californication
Heroes
Weeds
Downton Abbey

Shows a lot of people like that I couldn't get into, or absolutely couldn't stand:

Sons of Anarchy
Supernatural
Penny Dreadful
Arrow
Masters Of Sex
Mad Men
Prison Break
Most cop/detective shows on local television like NCIS and CSI
Black Sails
The News Room (I actually liked it until the liberal propaganda became so blatant it made me want to puke)

Im about to give The Blacklist a try, dont have very high expectations though for some unknown reason.

The Blacklist is AWESOME. You won't be disappointed.

Falling Skies is solid.

Rush is great, and very new.

I have been meaning to try out Battlestar Galactica. Not a big sci-fi fan but I did love Star Trek TNG and DS9.

It is really, really good. In my opinion the show either transcends the genre (Episodic Sci Fi TV) or takes it to its highest form.

My son and I watched it together and there were times that we were laughing uncontrollably, which is fairly uncommon.

It was my "run on the treadmill" show for about two weeks. I nearly fell off 2-3 times from laughing so hard I couldn't breathe. The episode with the Yogis and the one with hugging tent come to mind. The way "Kahl" just speaks his mind without regard to who is around is incredible.
