Who cares? They're just going to bring him back in a later episode when Stewie finally figures out how to make a new time machine.

He can't in the episode the arab dude says that he can't get the titanium rod thing anymore

meaning  he can never make a new time machine ever again.

Brian is dead for good.

Though there are two upcoming episodes with his name in it.

If he is dead for good, at least it'll make the show, which is a cartoon, have a more human/mortal feel to it.

If Brian is dead, that sucks.

Part of the reason I watched the show was the interaction between Brian & Stewie, and Peter's stupidity.
Gives me less reason to watch the show now.

That doesn't mean he can't get it from someone else, there's still possibilities.

Hello. They've killed kenny like 5 zillion times on South Park and he always comes back. 
It's an anated series and it's a talking dog. I'm sure if they want a Brian griffin ep Brian will be revived for that purpose.

The show won't work without Brian.  I wouldn't watch it.  I can only see them killing off Brian if they're winding down the series.

In one episode Brian basically blurted out all the things he disliked about Brian. Oh, here it is....

It's funny because even if what Quagmire said was true, he's still a hypocrite because he hits on Lois too, and does a lot of other even worse stuff than Brian.

Oh well, I like Quagmire anyways.

Brian used to be like the words of wisdom for the show, but in the recent seasons he became a complete douche. Quagmire has also become somewhat unlikable in the past couple of seasons. I don't know if this is an attempt to give him more of a backstory or something, but it's not working for me.

If you believe the intent was to write Brian out of the script (rather than boost ratings before bringing him back), that was part of the rationale: even the fans had realized he was basically the mouthpiece for Seth MacFarlane. I liked the role; he served as a foil for everyone in the show, and the pairing between Brian and Stewie worked. OTOH, the development of the relationship between Stewie and Vinnie has potential.

Shut up, Meg.

OK, keep talking, Meg. (For those who don't follow the show, yes, that's her voice actor. The one on the left, you pervs.)

There is no comparing an animated tv character to the achievements of one of the greatest men to have ever lived however that doesn't make this discussion any less relevant. And considering the amount of time you spend obsessing over...., maybe you should throw stones in this general direction.  The world didn't stop today but it did take take time to mourn.

Because we mourn the loss of an animated character, does not mean we mourn the loss of a living person any less.  Nelson Mandela was a great man, and he is truly missed, but he has nothing to do with this topic.

yes howard it would bring up ratings...people start talking about the show again....then they tune in to see how the character is killed and then they come back to see how they handle the show without the character only to find out the "dead" character has been brought back from the dead.... 

Killing off characters in TV shows has been done for contract disputes and for ratings for YEARS
