"Game of Thrones" creator George R. R. Martin admits that some fans have correctly guessed how he intends to end the series and he's even considered changing the story's big conclusion.

While attending the Edinburgh International Literary Festival, he told attendees that he's seen a few posters on Internet message boards rightly speculate on the series' secret finale, although most have been off-base, reports the Telegraph.

"At least one or two readers had put together the extremely subtle and obscure clues that I'd planted in the books and came to the right solution," he said.

"So what do I do then? Do I change it! I wrestled with that issue and I came to the conclusion that changing it would be a disaster, because the clues were there.... Some of my readers who don't read the boards — which thankfully there are hundreds of thousands of them — will still be surprised and other readers will say: 'See, I said that four years ago, I'm smarter than you guys.'"

Fans of "The Daily Show" will want to subscribe to its new official podcast, even though Jon Stewart himself isn't featured in the first episode.

Instead, writers Elliott Kalan and Jo Miller, correspondent Jessica Williams, and producer Sara Taksler talk about how they walk a fine line in turning disturbing news into comedy. Another writer, J.R. Havlan, discusses his experiences working on the show over the last 18 years.

Many children of the '80s are looking forward to Sept. 1, when "The Unauthorized Saved by the Bell Story" TV movie airs on Lifetime. It's based on the book "Behind the Bell" written by the now-ostracized Dustin Diamond, a.k.a. Screech, who ruffled some feathers with his tell-all. He's also an executive producer for the TV movie and insists it won't be scandalous.

"I think when this movie comes out, it's going to surprise people because it's not salacious, it's not dirty, it's not negative," he tells the Daily Beast.

"It's embracing all the positive things that happened and clarifying certain things. I think it's going to be pretty enjoyable. I think everyone's going to like it, including the other cast members."

But the first preview of the movie posted online tells a different story.

In it, a character portraying actress Lark Voorhies, who was Lisa on the series, is shown trying to sabotage a photo shoot out of jealousy.
