    I haven't seen the episode, but I can thank dozens of websites for immediately telling me just hours after the episode aired (and without spoiler warnings, of course). Still, if this sticks, it's just proof that Seth wants the show dead, and is trying to make it happen. I love Family Guy because it's both funny and offensive at the same time, but offensive and tedious? Nah, I'll pass. If this is permanent, the show will sink. As much as I laugh at Peter (not so much Lois, Meg, or Chris), Brian and Stewie make the show. If half of that duo is gone, it's just meh from now on.

    Isn't that reference like ten years ago?

    ETA: Nevermind, it was apparently from Something, Something, Something Dark Side (which explains why I remember it, because it actually would have been a Family Guy episode I watched). Although is he making fun of Lois's voice or Princess Leah's voice?

    Maybe, he's always struck me as a person who has little more then contempt for his audience.

    Yeah, this was kind of annoying.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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".

    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.

    Wow...even comic book characters stay dead longer than Brian.

    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.
