5/31: THAT METAL SHOW SEASON 12 IS HERE!
Well we are FINALLY here on the eve of new episodes of That Metal Show! Just wanted to take a second to say thanks to everyone around the world for supporting this show. It is amazing that a show that started in 2008 is still alive and well and hitting it’s 100th episode in the coming new season 12. Been doing a bunch of press for the new season and the passion for it is as great as ever. When I started with VH1 Classic back in 2002 (anyone remember Hangin With?) I was pushing back then to do a metal talk show. In ’08 I was happy to finally get the pilot. Never did I think we would become the longest running show in VH1/VH1 Classic history! And that is all because of you guys watching and spreading the word. TMS has very much been the little show that could. Whatever budget restrictions we work under don’t seem to matter. Hey, one day maybe we can even afford a live band and HD! I even hear from people that don’t like metal but like to watch, and that is a HUGE thing to continue our growth. From 30 minutes to an hour, from the start in NY to now taping in LA, it has been a phenomenal ride with so many legendary guests and I am grateful.
This new season kicks off with 8 new shows starting tomorrow night at 11P ET on VH1 Classic. We’ve been off for a while so important to spread the word and let everyone know these are ALL NEW shows! We also have many first time guests and many new features as well as an all new set. We are always trying to evolve the show within the confines of what the network will allow and this is by far the biggest jump we have ever taken as far as the look and new features. Of course the same tone of the show and the much loved segments remain. Some of the other segments come in and out as you will see. I will be hosting the Bonzo Bash in NJ when it airs tomorrow here on the E Coast, but look forward to hearing your feedback here and on Twitter. Again, thanks and enjoy, and let’s hope for another 100 episodes soon!
