Don't worry about the calorie burn. Whatever you do for exercise, you adjust your diet to account for it (so if you go for high calorie burn, you eat more to accommodate and fuel it) so you'll lose weight the same no matter which exercise you choose. What you should focus on instead is what you enjoy. When you do exercise, what interests you most? Do you like walking? What about dancing? Do you like a martial-arts style workout? Maybe something gentler, like yoga? Not big on calorie burn, but it would have HUGE benefits for your flexibility, balance, and well being.
Treadmills are boring as snot, I agree; if I have to watch TV or read to get through it, it's boring. I prefer to get outside. :)
