After Letterman moved to CBS in 1993, Leno found himself behind in the ratings.
His turnaround came in 1995, with guest Hugh Grant, the British actor who'd recently been arrested for soliciting a prostitute.
"What the hell were you thinking?" Leno asked Grant.
The episode marked the first time "Tonight" beat Letterman in the ratings -- and changed the momentum of the race.
