Guideline - either revived in the traditional sense or resumed. I go with The West Wing. We'd be nearing the end of a second term of Matt Santos. We could also jump into a world in which Santos lost the mid-term election. Either way, by jumping in during an election it allows for highly exciting television (the second half of season 6 with the election rivaled Sorkins' first four seasons). Plus, with an ongoing election it would allow for logical cameos. This show has many more stories to tell (literally an unlimited amount) and would thrive in today's television landscape, given The Newsroom inexplicably is entering its final season (only its third), Sorkin will be available soon.
