The article reports on the across-the-board decline in syndication ratings in the U.S. during the Fourth of July holiday week ended on July 9, 2006. The ratings decline was attributed to television viewers shying away from television to take their vacations and several preemptions due to coverage of the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
