When FOX's hit show, "Family Guy" killed off one of their beloved characters, pet Brian late last year. creator Seth MacFarlane said that he and his creative team did not expect the anger and rage that the fans displayed.

Seth MacFarlane told a huddle of reporters after his Television Critics Association press tour panel Monday “It surprised all of us. We were all very surprised, in a good way, that people still cared enough about that character to be that angry. We thought it would create a little bit of a stir, but the rage wasn’t something we counted on.” “It did what it was designed to do — it reminded people this is still a show where anything that can happen despite the fact it’s been on for awhile.”

The press asked if Brian was safe from this point on and MacFarlane said that they had already done that and Brian is safe now.

The ratings did soar after the show aired the episode, "Life after Brian" on November 24 with 4.58 million and the episode that resurrected Brian titled, "Christmas Guy" showed raitings soaring to 6.37 million viewers.

"Family Guy" is completing it's twelfth season on FOX. There are two more episodes left this season. It has been officially renewed for a thirteenth season.
