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 a couple of years 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? Trunk has a new show scheduled to air starting this summer on AXS TV about different festivals across the country.  I do believe the show could be aired somewhere else with the financial backing with the appropriate people or a similar one.   Is he holding it hostage for financial gain?  Nobody can answer that except Trunk.   I think the three people that starred in this show talked about themselves way too much and didn’t give the guests the proper opportunity to promote their music.   With Trunk being in the business for 30 years, musicians think highly of him which is perfectly acceptable.

What’s not acceptable is That Metal Show is off the air and we have no other alternative to watch.

What do you think it would take to bring back That Metal Show?  Different cast members? Changing the format? Another show with new members?

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

  1. I think their is definitely a market for metal & hard rock music,especially for middle aged headbangers like myself who still love it,and would love nothing more to see “that metal show”,come back,however the problem is the metal bands and artist are getting old and are retiring or getting close to hanging up there axes.
    While many metal acts are still active and touring
    Most TV stations view them as dinosaurs and on the way out,so I doubt it very much if if a network
    Wanted to invest in that.
