Non-Cartoons Flop on Cartoon Network, and a Nation Says, "Duh"

So as I understand it, a few years ago Cartoon Network was running lots of Japanese animated shows; and a few, such as BLEACH and NARUTO, were pretty successful. Then the anime ratings started going down; and FAMILY GUY, FUTURAMA, and some other American adult-oriented cartoons started doing well on the network's ADULT SWIM timeslot; and the network started cancelling anime programming and commissioning American shows with adult humor. Ratings went down. So Cartoon Network decided to decrease its animation content; and run some live-action reality series. Now, apparently, the network's ratings are in the toilet.

Just a suggestion: stick to showing cartoons on Cartoon Network. Is that too radical?
