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.

Is everyone forgetting Stewie has that invention that lets people see what would if they did something. Remember when he "killed" Lois. He took off the simulator helmet. Personally I think Brain has a chick that he is seeing in the past and he knew Stewie is thinking of destroying his time
machine. So Brian puts the simulator hat
on Stewie to show him the dangers of destroying his time machine.

OK so in the Family Guy movie "Stewie Griffin: The Untold Story" Brian dies of Theobromine Poisoning by eating chocolate he found in the....THUS Brian cannot die from being hit from a car....it would totally contradict the movie.

I'd be more shocked if Seff came out of the closet.
Wait, no I wouldn't.

To those upset because there was no spoiler alert; if you were such a big fan you would have watched it last night.

Brian was the best character in the show. If anyone had to die it should have been that insufferable ass, Peter. Killing off Brian was equivalent to killing off Molly of Mike and Molly, or Snoopy from Peanuts. What a colossal mistake. They really stepped in it this time. Brian and Stewie could have carried the show all by themselves.

Um, if Brian has been on the show for all 11 seasons how can he be 7 in dog years, wouldn't he be ELEVEN in dog years and 77 in human? I must've missed something in my calculations.

Stewie watches Frankenweenie on the TV, digs up Brian and resurrects him. Brian is now voiced by Lewis Black. Seth McFarlane gets sued for copyright infringement, for the 18th time.

The whole thing is a "take" on It's a Wonderful Life . . . I'm guessing Vinny is the angel (Clarence) showing us and Brian (Jimmy Stewart) what life without Brian would be like. After a couple of episodes without Brian, we'll return to either the scene of the accident or the vet's table, Brian will come to and voila! Brian is back.
