The "Tonight Show" host poked fun at NBC's low ratings when Greeblatt made an appearance on his show in late February.
While Leno's jokes “For the first time in history NBC is going to finish fifth in the ratings period. We are behind the Spanish-language network Univision — or as we call it here in Los Angeles: Cinco de Ratings” and “It’s so bad, 'The Biggest Loser’ isn’t just a TV show anymore; it’s our new motto" appeared to all be in good fun, Greenblatt wasn't pleased.
After rumors began to swirl that Leno might be leaving NBC, Greenblatt sent an angry email to the talk show host which sparked a series of tense emails between the two.
NBC hasn't divulged any details on the emails, but there's no doubt that the network has seen better days. »
