'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.

How dare you kill off Brian, he and Stewie are the best characters on the whole show. Please bring Brian back.

I say, keep Brian; get rid of Meg. Meg plays such a minor role, while Brian practically IS the family guy.

I'm staging a protest. If they killed off the dog, they could have at least considered giving the Griffins a cool cat. There's so much that someone can do with cats in storylines based on real cat behavior.

The episode was titled Life of Brian, his last words were "You've given me a WONDERFUL LIFE. A bell will ring, Brian will get his wings, become an angel, and the spinoff The Afterlife of Brian is born. Just a thought
