'Family Guy'

BRIAN GRIFFIN DIES

R.I.P.

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.

Are the holidays not depressing enough as it is? Now you have to go and kill Brian off right before Thanksgiving? Thanks for nothing, you a******s!

I'm a little surprised Seth didn't end the scene with Brian's remains being sold to a Chinese restaurant.

Most stupid show and most violent show (kids do watch this) on TV. I can't imagine what kids will turn out to be after watching this pure hard core violence. Pure crap.

Brian was a wonderful dog. I remember and thank him for getting me off of heroin and paving the way for me to begin my career in porn. He will be missed
