A lot of people weren't laughing at Sunday's Family Guy, which shockingly killed off the family's beloved dog Brian.
In response, fans have created a Change.org petition asking Seth MacFarlane and producers to resurrect Brian, because not even The Sopranos' Tony Sirico, who voices the Griffins' new dog Vinnie, can replace the wisecracking mutt.

The Griffin family has one less member this morning.

Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) is faced with a dilemma on Tuesday's episode of Dads: Will he choose his wife Camila (Vanessa Lachey) or his best friend Eli (Seth Green) to be his partner in a tennis tournament?
With its Sunday night "Animation Domination" lineup in a bit of a transition, Fox has given a 13-episode order to the new animated comedy Bordertown from Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane and Mark Hentemann to debut during the 2014-2015 TV season.
The show, created by Hentemann, takes place...
Giovanni Ribisi and Seth Green
Seth McFarlane's freshman comedy Dads, which has caused a stir because of its possibly offensive material, has been given a full-season order, Fox announced Friday.
"Fox has been looking to break into the multi-camera format for some time," Fox's Chairman of Entertainment, Kevin Reilly, said in a statement. "With...

On this week's episode of Dads, Warner (Giovanni Ribisi) and his doctor get uncomfortably close — and it looks like they're going to stay that way for a while.

It's sink or swim time for the studios behind this fall's crop of new TV shows. For the past year, executives have been pitching, developing, casting and producing what they hope will be the next big hits. Now it's all out of their hands, as viewers determine whether those series will go the distance or end up on the cancellation heap.
Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
To say Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. is highly anticipated is an understatement.
After The Avengers pulled in $1.5 billion globally and other Marvel blockbusters like Thor, Captain America: The First Avenger and the Iron Man franchise succeeded at the box office, ABC's collaboration with Marvel appeared to be a sure thing. Add to that that S.H.I.E.L.D. marks the television return of Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator and Avengers director Joss Whedon, who brings with him even bigger expectations for the new series.
On S.H.I.E.L.D., which is an offshoot of The Avengers film franchise, Agent Coulson...
As an object lesson in the extremes of new fall TV, welcome to Fox's new and not entirely improved Tuesday comedy lineup. (Unhappily missing in action, but for how long: Raising Hope, currently designated to return for its fourth season in the Friday swamplands in early November with back-to-back episodes, a scenario few believe will ever occur.)

If there's one new fall show that everyone seems to have an opinion about, it's Dads, the new Fox comedy from the production team behind Family Guy. Based on the pilot episode alone, the show has been derided as "racist," "offensive" and "morally wrong" by critics. But Fox is using the backlash as a selling point — using such comments in promos for the show to try to foster tension between fans and (in the network's telling) and out-of-touch critics. And the show's producers — Seth MacFarlane, Wellesley Wild and Alec Sulkin of Family Guy, along with former Simpsons showrunner Mike Scully — don't seem to mind the negative attention either.
"We're used to it. That's what we do," Wild tells TVGuide.com.
