VH1 Classic's centerpiece in original programming "That Metal Show" returns this week with the fourth episode of Season 13 on Saturday, February 8th at 11:00PM ET/PT.

The acclaimed hard rock/heavy metal talk show, hosted by Eddie Trunk, Don Jamieson and Jim Florentine invites American rock legend Ted Nugent to take center stage with an in-depth interview discussing Ted's influences, musical history, and how he avoided the usual pitfalls of the music industry all these years. This week's musical guest is Surfer-Rock guitar riff master, Gary Hoey. The usual fan-favorite segments return in this week's episode including the "TMS Top 5" Ted Nugent songs, "Put It on the Table", and a "Stump the Trunk" that has Eddie reeling from this week's questions.

The episode also features a "Metal Modem" segment with "TMS" alum, Biff Byford of the metal band Saxon, who checks-in to update the guys on Saxon's upcoming plans. This week's "Throw Down" is pre-empted and replaced by a surprise guitar performance by none other then the legend Nugent himself. Ted jumps up and showcases his signature playing style that made him famous for over 40 years.

Since the January 18th premiere of Season 13, "That Metal Show" continues to bring their audience the biggest names in hard rock and heavy metal. A number of guests have been confirmed for the upcoming episodes including Myles Kennedy and Mark Tremonti of Alter Bridge, Randy Blythe and Chris Adler of Lamb of God, and the Winery Dogs.

Other guests are still being confirmed at this time with more to be named at a later date.

    I'm expecting a political monologue involving guns, Obama, him running for office and more guns.
    Why can't That Metal Show have modern bands? I'm soooo sick of seeing all these old guys already :\
    They actually are having more modern musicians on the show this season. Morgan Rose, Lzzy Hale, M. Shadows, and Jason Hook have all been on so far and Mark Tremonti and Myles Kennedy will be on next week and Randy Blythe and Chris Adler the week after. Whether you like or dislike these guys, they are modern
    It's been a while since I've kept up with the show, but they always say, it's a matter of demand. They'd love to have guys from newer bands on but the network must approve.
    Not sure why all the Ted haters showed up, as stated above, he's going to discuss topics all in the context of him as a musician! Besides, Ted can shred! Wango Tango!! Free For All!! Suck it!
    So many people hatin on the Nuge, hes right about what he speaks about. Obama is no good, and guns are great. Get over it
    The Nuge has already destroyed most of his fanbase. This is why his concerts now resemble a white power gathering more than a rock show. All I can do is remember back to the days when you didn't hear much from the redneck windbag but music and when he did flap his lips it was about banging girls, that I suspect were mostly underage. I'm sure he got their parents blessing first. But then slowly the racist redneck in him started creeping out in between songs at concerts. And that was pre-Obama. Once the black guy won, his "where's the rope?!" switch flipped on big time and he was everywhere bitching about the black devil ruining our country. Even if he can refrain from discussing politics, which I SERIOUSLY doubt, he still comes across as a giant hypocritical douchebag. In true Uncle Ted The Pedo fashion, he does everything alpha style. That includes being annoying as all get out. Hopefully, they keep him on the topic of music. Which doesn't mean shit since no one but the NRA and KKK are going to buy his albums now.
    I wonder if you people realize, the second you mention the NRA, KKK, conservatives, Republicans, tea party, gays, etc. etc., your pathetic rants look just as worse as Ted's.
    Really, this old tea bagger is the best the Metal Show can do? Think I'll wash my hair instead. Pathetic
    Maybe if Eddie Trunk would lay off the damn Pringles Ridges and share them with the rest of the country, he'd realize that bringing Ted Nugent is a really bad idea.
    Whats with all the god damn Pringles references in every mother fudging post??
    I have a good idea for VH1. Now that they have Ted Nugent, why don't they fire Eddie, Don, and Jim and replace them with Dave Mustaine, Gene Simmons and Alice Cooper. That way the show can have the three biggest hypocrites in metal/hard rock. For those who aren't sure why I'm calling them hypocrites, here's a breakdown. 1. Early to mid eighties, the Christian right decide to start holding record burning parties, this includes records by Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, and Kiss. They then open up "de-metal camps" for Christian parents who want to get Satan out of their children. 2. The PMRC is founded sometime in the 80's, it is fronted by Tipper Gore, who at the time was married to a man who claimed to be a raging Christian moderate (this was long before he became Mr. Climate Change), and she brought along a ton of her friends, all of whom had republican husbands who catered to the evangelicals. And then they tried to censor rock music, but only ended up with a sticker, which I kind of like.. the sticker tells me the album has some naughty lyrics. Alice Cooper and Dave Mustaine's band were both targeted by these loons, but now both Cooper and Mustaine are born again Christians, and Cooper has even praised Sarah Palin, a woman who would have been burning albums with the others had she been old enough. As for Gene Simmons, he just amuses me because he thinks piracy is why KISS' albums don't sell very well anymore, he totally is out of touch with reality and still thinks the mainstream give a damn about KISS. Their album sales these days are no worse than they were when they were when they released Revenge the last I checked, and Revenge came out long before mp3's. Just saying.
    As for Nugent, he's a has been so I don't care that he's on the show. The man couldn't even hold his own in his debate with Roseanne, and out of all the liberal outspoken celebrities, I'd say she's the weakest link. If he ever went on Bill Maher's show, he'd get owned in about 15 seconds.
