CR, because people can watch it on their own time, and that, in general, the selection is bigger. Also, less censoring. Sure, Toonami is great in it's own way; however,Toonami suffers from being on a TV station, especially when the station has a habit of pushing Toonami further onto the back-burner. The fact that Cartoon Network even did away with Toonami for a while says alot.

As far as exposure and accessibility for new fans, Toonami. As far as which has more content to offer, CR.

I'm very inclined to say CR because Toonami is restricted to the US

Toonami helps in US because it is free and do-able via DirectTV since they broadcast Toonami on East Coast time while I am at West Coast plus you can record via TiVo/DVR. But now-a-day, I cannot be satisfied with the selection on Toonami and it does not have the latest from Japan. CR is my favorite.

I personally discovered Crunchyroll and anime in general because it was a channel on my Apple TV. I would have never discovered anime by channel surfing at 1am. Even when I watched a lot of cable TV I never channel surfed, I had my 5 favorite channels and I switched between them or checked TV Guide.

But, I think I'm an outlier there. Practically everyone I know still watches TV the old fashion way. But, they also aren't generally up at 1am.

Crunchyroll has: a much larger selection, same day as Japan, watch when you want, whatever episode you want, new tech over-the-top streaming service and is discoverable on the web and through streaming devices.

Toonami has: old tech that people still use on its side and more popular dubs.

Online streaming is the present and future. While TV showings will still have a place, it won't have much of an impact with limited time slots compared to the anytime, anywhere nature of streaming that can appeal to anyone with a decent internet connection. Of course the US is shit compared to the rest of the world in terms of internet infrastructure but if you're paying quite a penny for cable to get Cartoon Network in the first place, you probably have internet as well.

I was "blocking" TV commercials back in the VCR days.

A DVR made it a lot easier; no more needing 2-3 VCRs so I could record and view at the same time.

I actually remember recording old Kim Possible episodes via VCR, and the second KP movie, as well as a couple other movies and TV shows.
I pretty much watch everything through the internet, or Netflix, I personally prefer the selection of anime that's online as supposed to Toonami's and also, I'm not the biggest fan of dubbed versions, though it depends on who produced the dub.

I would say that the initial run of Toonami was more influential, while it's current incarnation is a sad shadow of it's former glory. From late 1999 to early 2004 Toonami was huge. Kids and teenagers would get out of school and watch these "Anime shows" on Toonami while they did their homework. It drove the then fledgling American anime community to look for more, to see more of what was out there. It expanded our interests and it kept us hooked day after day, week after week, for nearly 5 years. For a time it kept kids up late to watch the Midnight Run as well. Now it's just a late night Saturday portion of Adult Swim. Sure it still runs anime, and people still watch it, but it lacks the appeal, the advertising, and the viewership that it had in it's heyday.

I'd say that for the past couple years at least, Crunchyroll has been far more influential on the anime community. Really it could be even bigger, but there are still those who are skeptical and/or refuse to look beyond Crunchyroll's initial creation and the actions they took.
