Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson made a reference to Rush in his monologue this past Friday night when discussing the new Ron Howard film Rush. Craig mentioned that he was disappointed that the film was not about the band Rush, saying the following:

... when I heard about the movie Rush I thought "this is gonnna be great" and now I'm disappointed because I thought it was about Rush - you know the progressive jazz rock Canadian pop [trails off] ... Those guys can move their fingers really fast! Can't they? And then they pick up their instruments and play them ...

You can watch video of the monologue on YouTube below or at this location beginning at about the 1:40 mark. Thanks to Eric at Power Windows for the heads up.
