It's FOX, Brian was a Liberal. He had to go.

Wrong FOX. Remember, The Simpsons and FG take regular shots at the news network.

Lois's voice, roughly five years ago or so. I still remember.

I pretty much stopped watching the show after "Not All Dogs Go to Heaven." But from what I have seen, the show really tanked in quality after the relaunch.

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

I think Stewie and Brian are still the clear assets to the show. Unless MacFarlane truly wants to end the show, I doubt Brian'll stay dead. Leaving the show would probably do the trick. Fox should allow him to end if that's the case.

It's also a bit late to degayify Stewie. His lines, unlike Peter's and Chris's, remain generally clever. Brian isn't always funny, but like Stewie, has got plenty personality.

Meg can be funny again if they stop having Peter take brainless cheap shots. If they do things like having her cheek caught in the fishhook, that'd be an original step.

Lois can also be funny if they give her more to do. She could insult Peter for years, I think. Chris is a nails-on-a-chalkboard lost cause. He's stupid. We got it in 2004.

Let's also have a moratorium on bloody fights without chickens, please.

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

Fox will never cancel Family Guy again because even as the ratings have fallen it's still highly rated and has syndication deals.

MacFarlane has admitted he never thought the show would go on for as long as it has. I think they should go all out and have Stewie slide into another universe to find Brian and then sped a whole season looking for home. It's a cartoon, they need to do more crazy shit and less stupid random shit.

Stewie goes on some sort of vision-quest to the puppy farm & finds "new, new Brian".

Re: Family Guy character killed off (spoilers)

How long did it take him to grow back hair?

FOX just leaped over the last 3 month's of Brian's life, because he was too ugly.

We are awful.

Weird, I thought they were going to have the other dog for 6 episodes, so what's this, two-three episodes and they bring him back?

Maybe they should do a Search for Brian special.

They should bring Cleveland back too. His show sucked but when he left the dynamic with Peter, Quagmire and Joe wasn't the same.

I just assumed at some point the family would go to a pet store or shelter and discover And adopt an identical dog.
