Let's call it the least shocking plot twist of the year: Brian Griffin, the intelligent dog on Fox's long-running animated comedy "Family Guy" returned to the show on Sunday, ending three weeks of fan mourning. The episode, "Christmas Guy," revealed that Stewie, the diabolical genius baby of the Griffin family, used his time machine to go back in time and push Brian out of the way of the speeding car that claimed his life three weeks ago.

The mother of kidnap victim Hannah Anderson was bound, gagged and beaten to death before the killer set his home ablaze and fled with the teenager to the Northwest, according to the San Diego County medical examiner. Christina Anderson, 44, a medical assistant, died of blunt force injury to the head with a minimum of 12 blows to her face and head, an autopsy report released Monday said. A crowbar was found near the body. She also had a broken arm and her throat was slashed, although the latter apparently was done after she was dead, the report said.
