'Family Guy'

BRIAN GRIFFIN DIES

Seems Brian Griffin won't get a shot at a 3rd novel ... 'cause the martini-swigging, chick-bangin' family dog DIED on "Family Guy" last night.

Brian -- who's been on the show for all 11 seasons -- was hit by a car in last night's episode ... and died from his injuries.

Stewie tried to save his pal by going back in time and preventing the accident -- but he had JUUUST taken apart his time machine, and was unable to rebuild it before Brian croaked.



Brian was replaced by a new dog, Vinnie -- voiced by "Sopranos" star Tony Sirico.

Unclear if Brian will somehow come back to life in future episodes -- but we wouldn't be surprised if he did.

Brian was a good dog. He was an Iraq war veteran. a porn director, coke addict, police dog and (of course) a passionate writer.

Brian was 7ish ... or 49ish in dog years.

Let me know when they resuscitate Brian so I can watch it again. He's the only reason I did.

I have never missed an episode but Im done. It was a great escape once a week, that I really enjoyed (especially considering all the so called reality crap on TV). This is where the Simpson show was much smarter, kill off a secondary character instead of one important to the show. Everyone seems to think they will bring Brian back, I hope someone tells me because Im done until they do.

I have to say, I find this post, a bit disturbing.

What the Hey??? Brian was the main reason I watched the show. Brian and Stuwy had great chemestry. Everyone else is expendable.

Bring Back Brian Bring Back Brian Bring back Brian....

Without Brian, I don't see much reason to watch The Family Guy. Once he's gone, foggetabot it!

It's a freakin' CARTOON, for God's sake! The writers can do anything they want with the character....including miraculously resurrecting him in an epsiode or two.

This cartoon SUCKS, and the ratings were in the toilet, so I guess the writers figured this could get them some free publicity. It worked.

Damn you FOX! “Why?” is the question. Why have you killed off the most amazing and beloved character?! He better come back. Or I will start a petition and the petition will go nationwide. Besides, it is not the actor because Seth is still voicing Peter and Stewie. I am unsatisfied with this episode and unhappy with the creator of Family Guy.

Sad to see Brian pass on. I hope it's all a bad dream sequence like in Dallas years ago.

I've been a long time fan, and maybe they needed to step it up and bring in something fresh, but this was a bad idea! They even managed to make me tear up a little! RIP Family Guy!

Brian was the star of Family Guy. My family and I have been long term fans. Why even watch it again?
