    Let’s perk up our prediction center by giving you more things to predict. We currently feature award shows and TV reality programs, but what else can we add? A few months ago we had you predict how many zombies would be killed every week on ‘The Walking Dead” — that was a hoot and it reminds us that we don’t have to strictly stick to our past. What suggestions do you have? Let’s keep this in the pop culture realm — no sports. No celeb gossip. I don’t want us predicting when Chris Brown will go back to jail or when Lindsey Lohan has another toxic meltdown.

    Some way to do character death pools for a season of an action show? Stuff like Boardwalk Empire, The Americans, Orphan Black, Justified would all work. I remember a thread on Reddit about last year’s Boardwalk Empire finale. People were betting lists of the people they thought would die in the finale. Some seemingly doomed people like Narcisse and Eli were only worth 1-5 points, while Nucky was worth like 50 and Capone was worth like 100 (due to their unlikeliness to die that prematurely).

    Do we predict things like “How long will the next Academy Awards broadcast run”, or “How many Emmy winners will be interrupted by the orchestra”?

    Why don’t we predict awards like the Satellite Awards?

    As we continue to strenghten our Tony Awards coverage every year, I think it would be great to be able to predict the other major Broadway awards, such as the Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk.  There’s a significant opportunity for coverage that a lot of other media outlets barely acknowledge!

    You can add predictions for box office/ ratings/ album sales.

    I agree about TV ratings. Being able to predict the TV BAFTAs would also be nice.

    Sports Emmys (still tv shows!)

     

    Maybe predict recipients of honorary awards (AFI, Cecil B. Demille Award, Kennedy Center Honors, etc).

    What about the literary awards? Pulitzer Prize, National Book Awards, Pen/Faulkner, NBCC, Man Booker, Nobel Prize for Literature, etc.?

    I know this is a losing battle, but it’s worth mentioning anyway.

    Why don’t we predict how long a show will last? For example, we could now predict how long new fall shows like Gotham, Mulaney or How to Get Away With Murder will be on the air before getting cancelled/before they end.

    Predicting deaths on Game of Thrones would keep us pretty busy.
