The top trending entertainment news today isn’t who wore what at the American Music Awards or Miley Cyrus‘ giant kitten backdrop at the show. Instead, it is the purported “death” of Brian Griffin, the beloved talking dog from the animated TV series Family Guy. In the episode titled “Life of Brian” that aired yesterday night, Brian was unceremoniously ran over by a car while setting up for a game of street hockey. But like everything else in the animated world, the Griffins got a new dog and Brian was mostly forgotten by the episode’s end. Acknowledged as a scheme to shock viewers by series creator Seth MacFarlane, the ploy might have worked too well however. This morning, fans of Family Guy and Brian Griffin took their grievances to Change.org. In a digital petition, supporters stated Brian as a “…witty and sophisticated element to the show…” It also added that “…Family Guy and Fox Broadcasting will lose viewers if Brian Griffin is not brought back to the show…” There are over 3000 signatures on the petition already.
