Double Rush is an American CBS television comedy that lasted only one season in 1995. The series was co-created by Murphy Brown's creator, Diane English. Robert Pastorelli played Johnny Verona, manager of a bicycle delivery service in New York City. Verona must keep his business on its feet in the face of competition from the increased use of fax machines and the internet.

The show premiered January 4, 1995 and ended with the twelfth episode on April 12 of that year. The reason for its cancellation might be because of the title of the seventh episode 'The Show We Wrote the Day We Found Out We Were Going on Opposite Roseanne'. Apparently, "even the most smart-mouthed, wise-cracking New York working stiffs couldn't compete with Roseanne for ratings."
