If anyone needed any further proof that Donald Driver would eventually be winner of this season's "Dancing with the Stars," they probably needed to look no further than last night. Put another way, Driver couldn't beat the Giants -- but, hey, no one could -- but he should easily win on this field.

Finesse and strength -- that's what he had for last night's paso; plus the floor spin of partner Peta Murgatroyd was some sort of show record; others have tried that move, and usually the partner spins once or twice; she spun around at least half a dozen times. That was very impressive. Surprises last night? Only that William Levy collapsed so dramatically.

Week four is the most important in any show cycle simply because it determines who really has the chops to go the distance, and who does not (poor Melissa Gilbert! And only a couple of years out of back surgery. She was hospitalized, briefly, if you haven't already heard.) .

Again, the very simple rule of thumb here: World class athletes in their prime, or near prime, usually win "DWTS.' Driver has this one cold.
