    VH1 Classic has decided against producing any more episodes of "That Metal Show", the hard rock/heavy metal talk show hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine.

    Trunk, Jamieson and Florentine said in a statement: "It has been an incredible run of eight years, roughly 125 episodes and some really cool specials.

    "The global response to 'That Metal Show' has been simply amazing, and we will be eternally grateful for the support from the rock and metal fans that have showed us so much love. We truly would have never made it as long as we did without you! A huge thanks also to the great crews we had over the years both in New York City and Los Angeles, to our producer Jeff Baumgardner, and to all the executives at VH1. And finally, thanks to the hundreds of artists that joined us on our set, had fun with us, shared their stories and many, many laughs. From the biggest names in rock history, to the up-and-comers: we thank you all for being a part of it.

    "Of course we very much want to keep 'That Metal Show' alive, and with the blessing of VH1 Classic, we've got the keys to the show and are currently searching for a new home. We're not sure where we'll 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 come say, 'Hello.'

    "Thank you for watching all these years, and we'll keep you posted as soon as we have news to share."

    I hope they find a new home. Parts of it are lame, but all in all it's good, the only show about metal on TV. Fun to see the old rockers with dyed hair.

    Just think, Jim has in his memory bank what it's like to fuck that beast Quivers. He must wake up screaming in terror.

    Trunk knows a lot about music. However, he is That Metal Show's version of John Hein. I do not understand how people with no personality host TV or radio shows. Trunk also likes a lot of cringe-worthy bands. Only person I enjoyed on that show was Florentine. Don Jamieson looks like a MEGA DOUCHE with those mutton chops.

    Trunk can go back to giving handjobs in the alley behind every Ratt, Quiet Riot and and Queensryche show.

    That's too bad.

    Maybe now Eddie Trunk can find the time to get his fat head crushed by a garbage truck.

    I loved that show. They had the biggest names on. Dio. Priest. Ace. Sammy. Artie Lange

    Where else could you see a 5 min debate on best AC/DC album

    And I loved Eddie's crazed maniacal anger at Rock Hall of Fame

    I bet it shows up somewhere else. Palladia?

    One of my favorite shows; hope they find a new network. It's very cheap to make.

    I love metal, but I can't watch that show. Florentine's voice gets to me, he sounds like he's blowing through throat cancer on every word. Kinda like like that Don and Mike guy, that struggled to blow through sweat and neck fat to get his point across.

    Maybe the AXS channel too ? They have a lot of concerts on there plus a lot of re-runs. Some new programming would be good for them.
