There was a Rush reference on last night's episode of the NBC sitcom Great News (Season 1, Episode 7 - The Red Door). Towards the end of the episode Carol (Andrea Martin) stows a wax statue of Chuck on the roof of the news building, which causes all of Chuck's co-workers to think he's trying to commit suicide. They proceed to try to talk him down and the real Chuck overhears all the nice things they are saying about him. Carol turns to Chuck and says, "All those people care about you." Chuck then says, "I feel like Tom Sawyer.". To which Carol replies, "Like you're at your own funeral?". Chuck answers, "No - like I'm an amazing song by Rush!. The reference occurs at about the 18-minute mark and you can watch the episode online here. Thanks to Paul P (aka Bluesaloon) for the heads up.
