Hi Kev!
Great idea!
Here are my predictions:

"Two and a half Men" will be cancelled, and Angus T Jones and Aston Kutcher will both get their own shows.

More classic TV shows will be remade as movies, including Gilligan's Island, the Time Tunnell and the Land of the Giants.

I would like to see Tom Gaebel sing for Germany in Eurovision 2012, and Volkan Baydar sing for Germany or Turkey. Mehrzad Marashi
has a good chance of being selected to sing for Germany. Eurovision is so unpredictable now however I have no idea if any of them will carry the telephone vote to win.

The next Dr Who will be an unknown actor.

Hopefully Obama will win a re election. Whatever happens, some of the Republican candidates will make themselves look like complete idiots as the campaign makes its slow painful progression towards November 2012.

Ed Miliband will still be Labour leader at the end of the year.

The UK will have heavy blizzards during the rest of the winter. The summer will have only a few warm days that take place long apart- most of the season will have everyone wondering if its ever going to get hot.

The Christmas number 1 will be a song that made its premier on Facebook.

New movie franchises will include Green Arrow, Aquaman, and the Atom.
Because of all the Marvel characters that have been made into movies I wouldn't be surprised if a remake of Howard the Duck is announced.
