Where has it actually been confirmed that Vinny will "replace" Brian?
Brian will still be a member of the Griffin family after this episode, as you can see his name in later episode titles, and with Cleveland in the pre-season trailer.
Vinny won't "replace" Brian.

The press release states that Vinny is a replacement, but just like New Brian, it is very likley it is temporary. In addition, Vinny is supposed to return later. --Buckimion (talk) 19:03, November 10, 2013 (UTC)
Fair enough, but you're right, it can't be permanent. Certainly not if Brian is the replaced character. There's two more episodes this season with him in the title, and Steve Callaghan confirmed the other day, that Brian will feature in an episode at the start of next season (Season 13). 18.104.22.168 22:55, November 10, 2013 (UTC)
Thank God! Brian is my favourite character, I would never watch family guy again if he was gone forever
Scratch that. Tony Sirico (Vinny's voice actor) confirmed he will appear in at least 6 future episodes. But it still doesn't rule out the possiblity of Brian's return. Lord O' Darkness (talk) 15:23, November 29, 2013 (UTC)
Am I the only person who thinks that Vinny is a douche? To me, he's nothing but an Italian stereotype, and a wannabe mafia member.
Oh yeah where Brian go to make a reapparition as a ghost because the life is the life when you're deat you're death i think only his ghost will appear.
Spelling Error Edit
In the final area of the article, it should say "he and the Griffins never met, not Griffin's.
This is a message to Buckmion. What species of dog is Vinny and Brian?
Shouldn't this page be moves to "Vinny Griffin"? He's a part of the family now. --22.214.171.124 21:04, December 22, 2013 (UTC)
Should remaining three appearances be noted upon? Edit
Vinny is going to be in three more episodes this season, from what I've heard, unless his voice actor is doing a different character. Still, could that be added to the article? General Ironbeak (talk) 03:48, January 10, 2014 (UTC)
Anyone else miss him?Edit
Anyone else miss Vinny? He was a nice change to the show, and they threw him out in just 2 episodes. Is anyone with me when I say that he needs a place on the show? Even as a side character, he deserves a place somewhere. Thieverpedia (talk) 10:43, March 7, 2014 (UTC)
