When Vic Jacobs, billing himself as Vic the Brick, came to Channel 13 from Fresno last summer wearing loud tuxedo jackets, bolo ties, spiked hair and tennis shoes, the general reaction was: Send this guy back to the San Joaquin Valley.
[Rick Feldman] said Jacobs' ratings have improved slightly, but credits that mainly to the addition of the "Arsenio Hall Show" at 11 p.m. During the one-hour 10 o'clock news, Jacobs comes on at about 10:50.
When the news of Steve Garvey's troubles surfaced last week, here's how Jacobs handled it: "Somebody slap me, I think I'm going goofy," he said. "Garvey in a love triangle. . . . Sports' seedy underbelly is getting Vic sick."
