Later this year, The New York Times will launch a new website entitled Watching, which is intended to serve as a recommendation resource for all things television and film, according to the company.

Watching will also ultimately feature tools that guide users to “the best streaming content distilled from among the hundreds of scripted shows now released each year,” according to the Times.

The vertical will be helmed by the Times' TV editor Gilbert Cruz, and the newsletter written by former Vulture reporter Margaret Lyons.

What Shows Will Make Me Cry? Your Pressing TV Questions, Answered

10 February 2016 11:19 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Welcome back to Stay Tuned, Vulture's TV advice column. Each Wednesday, Margaret Lyons answers your pressing television questions. To submit your own Qs, please email staytuned@nymag.com, leave a comment, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. My favorite shows are low-concept, human ones that make me cry: Six Feet Under, Friday Night Lights, Parenthood (Boy Meets World also holds a special place in my tear ducts). I've been somewhat emotionally satiated by comedy/dramas like Transparent, Looking, BoJack, Enlightened, Please Like Me, You're the Worst, Cucumber/Banana. I just have not been able to find more dramas that give me that gut-wrenching, squee-inducing, choked-up feeling that I would get on an episodic basis with the above shows. It feels like dramas these days are too concept-driven for their own good. I love the payoff on an emotional investment; prime-time soaps and dramas lately feel too rushed to earn »

3 February 2016 11:12 AM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Welcome back to Stay Tuned, Vulture's TV advice column. Each Wednesday, Margaret Lyons answers your questions about your various TV triumphs and woes. Need help? Have a theory? Want a recommendation? Submit a question! You can email staytuned@nymag.com, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. Today, in honor of the Netflix revival, a special edition, all about Gilmore Girls. Like a lot of dedicated TV-watchers, I can tell when there is a changing of the guard. We all know the doom of West Wing season five or the painful spiral of Dexter. As someone who is now precious with TV time, is season seven a must-watch? I've completed season six. I assume the "revival" will be accessible for all, but especially rewarding for those who watched every season. —CollinI answered a similar question back in 2014, but in the wake of revival news, let's revisit this: Should you watch season seven? »

Submit a question! You can email staytuned@nymag.com, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. I love political TV shows and since this is an election year and the news coverage is non-stop I have turned into a political junkie. I need more. Are there are fictional political shows you can recommend? Aside from The West Wing (obvi) or current shows like Veep, Alpha House, and House of Cards, are there any overlooked series or TV movies I should be watching? I'm a Huge Jack & Bobby fan but it is so hard to find, so any other recommendations would be greatly appreciated! — ChrisOh, Jack & Bobby — that was a fun one. If you like that mid-2000s vibe, »

Submit a question! You can email staytuned@nymag.com, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. I've just started watching Nurse Jackie on Netflix. I'm about five episodes into season one, and while I'm enjoying it, I'm not totally hooked yet. Should I take the plunge? With seven seasons ahead of me, is it worth my time, or will it lead to heartbreak and regret? Still recovering from Lost, Dexter, Weeds, etc. —ClaireMy favorite season of Nurse Jackie is season six, and I like season seven a lot, so I encourage you to see it through. But I'll also tell you the show changes a lot over its lifespan — and depending on which aspects you like, your mileage will vary. »

Submit a question! You can email staytuned@nymag.com, leave a comment, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. What are your favorite shows that deal primarily with college? I don't mean shows that started in high school and end in college, but shows that started in college and then maybe transitioned to the real world. My picks are A Different World, Greek, and Fresh Meat. I'm tempted to include Skins and My Mad Fat Diary, but they have different meanings for college and university across the pond. What shows do you think I'm missing besides Apatow's Undeclared? —MaryssaThe only major college show that's missing from your list is Felicity, and maybe Community, though I wouldn't really group Community »

Submit a question! You can email staytuned@nymag.com, leave a comment, or tweet @margeincharge with the hashtag #staytuned. What do you recommend for people who like good comedy but not prestige drama? I have no shame about my distaste for prestige drama, but recommendations are harder to come by when you can't handle the violence of The Wire or Game of Thrones and you find Mad Men and Downton Abbey boring. My comedy tastes to tend fall into a few categories: dark (Dead Like Me, You're the Worst), absurd (Don't Trust the B—, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Broad City), gentle (Raising Hope, Black-ish), satirical (Better Off Ted, Veep), or combinations thereof (dark/absurd = Archer, gentle/satirical = Parks and Rec).
