    That Metal Show  Saturday, 11 p.m., VH1 Classic

    As a heavy-rock fan, I have a soft spot for this low-rent but enthusiastic cable series dedicated to “all things hard rock and heavy metal.” Hosted by veteran DJ Eddie Trunk and comics Jim Florentine and Don Jamieson, the series treats even the corniest of hair metal survivors with respect and bows down to the true giants of the genre. The 12th season opens with a visit from former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted. Horns up!
