Maybe it is possible but I'm doing something wrong.

I want to know the total number of reminders for the day by just glancing at the icon. Do you have any suggestion?

Apple decided not to show one so there isn't. – patrix Dec 22 '11 at 21:36
maybe there is jailbreak tweak that enables it, or at least shows them on notification panel?? – Tural Aliyev Dec 22 '11 at 21:42
I know that this question is a bit old, but to answer your question, there is on, er, that version of iOS that is currently under NDA. See here for more info. – gtmtg Jun 27 '12 at 18:01
@gtm Ehh... It's ancient question lol:)) – Tural Aliyev Jun 27 '12 at 18:53

Badges now show for reminders as of iOS 6, released September 2012.

Let them know you want it:

According to this post at Cult of Mac, that functionality will be coming with iOS 6, which will be shipping this fall.
