'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.

I think they might bring Brian back because Stewie still has the return pad that he stole from the Stewie of the alternate universe.

I can't watch the clip, I'll cry.
What is funny, though, is the news that Peter Paul will be the voice of Vinnie. ; )

wow ew    

For the person who said Brian was i n the audience at his funeral. That was NOT Brian. That was Brian's cousin Jasper. I didn't even like Brian that much but that was so random. I actually missed the beginning and saw the family hunched over someone so i had to rewatch the beginning. This is stupid. Why kill off a good thing. I know it's just a cartoon but still. Ugh.

It's got to be some kind of publicity stunt to bring back viewers who don't watch in prime time anymore, I know I don't - but I might to see if and how Brian is brought back. It only makes sense for Brian to come back, if they were going to kill him off for real it would have been something much more elaborate and poignant than a car accident. I would have been P*SSed to see this episode, I am glad I didn't. Will be waiting for the update when they bring him back. They have to bring him back - ITS BRIAN- and no one can take his place.

If that annoying idiot dad were to get killed I might start watching it again. Brian and Stewey were the only reasons to watch.

I hate Family Guy now. I have been watching since day one. Message to the writers: tasteless and fail.

I liked Brian but I did not like the bestiality line. Let's hope Vinnie can keep it in his pants

They will bring him back. Brian was the only decent star on the show. I quit regularly watching the show several years ago since they seemed to be running out of good and funny stories. If Brian is left dead I won't even watch once in a while.
