Today we start in week 3 and relaunch "The Dancing Fool" - so-named because the person who writes it knows nothing about dancing.

Thus, caveat emptor.

Our desire is to sift through the tea leaves, scattered widely across the over-polished floor of "Dancing With the Stars," to determine who will leave each week until the final, glorious, light-spangled conclusion.

And so, let's get right down to it. If there were justice in dancing heaven - apparently there is not - Kate Gosselin would have cha-cha-cha'ed right out the door and on the way to her new TLC reality show last week. Instead, Shannen Doherty got the drop.

Here's roughly where we stand: A former Pussycat Doll is the current leader, and a man who once walked on the moon (as opposed to moonwalked) is at the bottom.

So, who goes tomorrow? With the 10th season of "DWTS," I'm liking "fame" vs. someone who's actually got "game"; Kate is the most famous (though famous only for being famous). She stays tonight, even if she stumbles. Buzz Aldrin stays, too. How can you not vote for someone who once leaped across craters, even if he couldn't leap over a teacup now?

This means: Either Niecy Nash or soap hunk Aiden Turner is vulnerable. My pick for a one-way ticket to Oblivionville? Turner.
