Looks like it's a "Don't call us, we'll call you" kind of thing as it pertains to Toonami airing on CN/AS.....

Ratings for April Fools. Seems like the claim that AS pulled double the numbers might be a bit off. It did a fair bit better than their usual saturday line up (a couple hundred thousand extra viewers) but still doesn't match up to weeknight ratings.

Those numbers are still pretty damn good for Toonami, and that's without any promotion going for it, those watching had to tell people and spread it via word of mouth so imagine what kind of ratings CN/AS could bring in if they promote the block with Toonami style advertising....
If they did daily promotion for Toonami those ratings could easily be higher, but I'd rather them promote the shows themselves rather than promote the block, lets the shows stand on their own instead of the name of a defunct action/adventure block.
