VH1 Classic will not say “Eight Is Enough” and again bring you its Hard Rock and Heavy Metal program “That Metal Show” which features host Eddie Trunk and his comedic companions Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine. Tonight is the premiere of its Eighth Season and the second go round for the show this year.
The program remains the same since the engine is moving steady at one hour now but they will be swapping around the Michael Sweet/Jani Lane/Taime Downe episode that was supposed to air later in the season based on the death of Warrant’s Jani Lane.
