FAMILY GUY PRODUCER EXPLAINS DECISION TO KILL OFF BRIAN



Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy doesn't exactly come to mind when thinking about TV's heartfelt dramas but Sunday's (November 24th) episode took a sad turn when writers killed off the Griffin family dog, Brian -- voiced by MacFarlane. E! News sat down with executive producer Steve Callaghan to get to the bottom of the decision to kill off a character who had appeared in every episode of the animated series since the pilot.

Steve explained, "This was an idea that got pitched in the writers room and it sort of caught fire, and we thought it could be a fun way to shake things up. As soon as this idea came up, we started talking about what the next couple episodes could be and we got very excited about the way this change will affect the family dynamics and the characters. It seemed more in the realm of a reality that a dog would get hit by a car, then if one of the kids died. As much as we love Brian, and as much as everyone loves their pets, we felt it would be more traumatic to lose one of the kids, rather than the family pet." When asked if he is worried about fan backlash from the twist, Callaghan responded, "Our fans are smart enough and have been loyal to our show for long enough, to know that they can trust us. We always make choices that always work to the greatest benefit of the series."

The Griffin family wasted no time in replacing Brian with a new dog named Vinny -- voiced by The Sopranos actor Tony Sirico.
Fans of the show have already started a petition to bring Brian back.
