What to Watch on TV Right Now

Besides anything in the reality category, which I don’t watch, what did I miss?

PS—Most of these I don’t watch at any one time, but rotate them in intervals through services like Netflix, Hulu and Aereo. The last one just came to ATL, and is spreading big time throughout the coming year across the country. I’m looking forward to giving it a go!
