Will That Metal Show Ever Return To Television?

By Andrew Catania

It has been a couple of years since That Metal Show was taken off the air from VH1 Classic as they changed their format.  Eddie Trunk has been trying to find a new home for the show.

Eddie Trunk said in a statement:

“With the blessing of VH1 Classic, we have got the keys to the show and are currently searching for a new home,” he said. “We are not sure where we will land, but we hope to be back in our studio and your living rooms as soon as possible. In the meantime, keep an eye out for us on the road and say, ‘Hello.’ Thank you for watching all these years, and we will keep you posted as soon as we have news to share.”

It has been almost a year and a half since the cancellation. Trunk has said nobody has made an appropriate offer.  Despite what people say, there’s a market for hard rock and heavy metal music.  We had 60 minutes weekly on VH1 Classic to see our favorite bands and artist showcased.  What could be done to return this show to the airwaves? Different cast members? Changing the format? Some people complained the three cast members of That Metal Show talked too much about themselves and not letting the guests speak and talk about their new album, band, etc.

What do you think could change to get That Metal Show back on the air?  Share your comments below!
