Brian, Family Guy's erudite dog who died in an episode last month, may return to the series.
The character will appear on the show's December 15th episode, though how and why he will return remains a mystery, Entertainment Weekly reports. The character was run over by a car in the November 24th episode and even though his human friend, the talking baby Stewie Griffin, tried to rebuild a broken time machine to save the dog, he was unable.
The official synopsis of the episode on the 15th, titled "Christmas Guy, »

Family Guy may soon have a Christmas miracle on its hands. According to Entertainment Weekly, talking dog Brian will return to the animated comedy, just weeks after the show killed him off. Almost immediately after Brian's death in a car accident at the age of 11, fans began speculating that the show would bring him back. A talking dog with literary ambitions and a love of martinis, Brian seemed to be too good a character to disappear for good, and more than 128,000 Family Guy fans signed a petition advocating his return.Now it appears they'll get their wish: According to an official cast of characters, »

Remember when Brian died on Family Guy and they said it wasn't a stunt, but no one really believed them? Yeah, keep on not believing them. Though that Brian announcement site ended up being just a fan site, Entertainment Weekly says he will be back. It's not clear exactly how he'll return, but the logline for the December 15 episode reads, "Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas.” Beyond that, Maya Rudolph was cast over a month ago to play a runner whom Brian falls for in an episode scheduled for next fall. Hopefully on the 15th we'll get a sense of what the point was of all of this, beyond publicity (which, to be fair, totally worked) and distracting us from the fact that, like Brian, we too die, but we don’t have an evil genius to bring us back. »

Wipe your tears, ‘Family Guy’ fans! New evidence suggests we’ll be seeing Brian again in a matter of weeks.
Anyone up for a Christmas miracle? Just weeks after the controversial death of Family Guy‘s Brian Griffin, it sounds like we might be seeing America’s favorite atheist pooch again really soon! Fueling speculation that Brian’s passing was merely a publicity stunt, the official description for the Dec. 15 episode — cryptic as it may be — strongly suggests that Brian (Seth MacFarlane) will be returning to the land of the living.
On the Christmas episode, “Stewie devises a master plan to get the one and only thing he wants for Christmas,” according to the official description from Fox. And, as pointed out by Entertainment Weekly, the network lists Brian as a character on the episode.
Another indicator that Brian will be back for good is that several episodes this season »

You might want to dry those eyes and pour a welcome-back martini for Brian, because it looks like our dearly departed dog will be returning shortly to Family Guy.
Yes, the beloved talking canine who met his demise in the Nov. 24 episode will pop back up on the animated Fox comedy in the Dec. 15 installment. (The network declined to comment.) How exactly Brian — who is voiced by series creator Seth MacFarlane — will re-emerge from the land of the dead is unknown, but he will continue to play a role on the show.

"The Facts of Life" remains to be one of the most loved classic TV sitcoms ever. Originally airing on NBC from 1979 to 1988, it was the longest running sitcom of the 80s.
On Tuesday (Dec. 3), cast member Kim Fields welcomed a second baby with her husband Christopher L. Morgan. Born at 10:30 a.m. Et, the baby boy has been named Quincy Xavier Morgan, brother to 6 1/2 year old Sebastian.
The news that Tootie Ramsey has two kids made us wonder: What are the rest of her cast members up to now?
Along with her two sons, Fields' next project is "Holiday Love: The Rebirth," a holiday special she directed and executive produced with her husband.
The actress who played Blair Warner toughed it out on "Survivor: Phillipines" despite not being a fan of reality TV. She even made it to the finals, but lost in the end to Denise Stapley. »
All the talk in the world of adult animation over the past week or so has been about Family Guy.
The internet is still buzzing after its writers decided to kill off a permanent member of the Griffin family – Brian – a plot which sent fans reeling.
Petitions were launched, Twitter went into meltdown and fan theories were hatched, and while one Seth MacFarlane-created show continues to dominate conversation, another quietly trundles through its tenth series.
American Dad! is currently into its final run (on the Fox network, don’t worry) before making the move onto TBS for its upcoming season 11, and there’s even talk of a potential film, which speculation suggests is to be set on Roger’s home planet.

[This is a review of the series premiere of Rick and Morty. There will be Spoilers.]

I should have heeded the very serious man’s warning ahead of the new episode of The Blacklist on Monday: “Graphic content” “viewer discretion” Blah Blah. Nbd.
But, as it turns out, his warning was not just for the pearl-clutchers of the world. The episode was rather disgusting. In one scene, for example, Red dragged a rapidly bleeding Ressler to his FBI-issued glass safety cube so he could treat Ressler for his injuries after being shot. And among the procedures he had to carry out? A wound cauterization that involved gun powder, a lighter, and my horrified screams. Then there was that execution scene… »

This past Sunday, Family Guy in case anyone is still doubting it, Brian Griffin is dead and he’s not coming back. At least if Steve Callaghan has anything to say about it. What began as a “fun way to shake things up” has turned into the latest source of fan backlash on the Internet. Well, you can add this writer to the list of people that think this is one of the stupidest ideas since Cousin Oliver showed up to the Brady’s doorstep.
Killing off Brian is one of those Jump The Shark moments that most TV shows find it hard to recover from. Seeing as Family Guy is already on shaky ground with its continued fanbase, this seems to be the straw that breaks the camel’s back.
Here’s five reasons why this author feels it’s time to put Family Guy itself under the bus, »
