Doctor Who was brought back in 2005 with fresh ideas, a frees perspective and brand new stories. It was also brought back without rebooting a damn thing.
Doctor Who had a long established "reboot" mechanism with regenerations and the notion that the sidekicks were temporary characters.

Even if it technically was never fully rebooted, I don't see how one could apply the Doctor Who method to most other television programs. "Captain Picard had a medical procedure and now he's a younger guy with a different personality." Not going to work.
