'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.

No way! I haven't watched the show for quite a while, but Brian was the only reason to go past the first minute.
Killing him off is absolutely the stupidest thing they could have done to that show. Mark my words, ratings will go right down the tubes without their best charactor.....what were they thinking?

I’ve been watching Family Guy for all my life and I loved Brian as much as Peter, Stewie, Lois, Chris (except Meg) or anybody on the show and it made me cry to see him die. But I Remembered this, Brian wasn’t only favorite character killed of the show, Diane Simmons, Mr. Weed, Bertram, James Woods or any other Family Characters like them. I’m sure he’ll be with his mother in heaven. I know you’re all sad and upset, but things will work out, Brian would’ve wanted his family to have a new dog, Vinnie, if Peter, Lois, Chris, Meg and Stewie are happy with him, then Brian would be happy too. No matter how life is without Brian Griffin on the show, he’ll always be in a place in our hearts.
