Actor Alec Baldwin called out comedians John Oliver and Stephen Colbert on Wednesday for abandoning less-serious late-night content in favor of harder-hitting political segments.

"Talk shows were once promotional pit stops for some blithe chit chat about movies, etc. Now the likes of @iamjohnoliver and @StephenAtHome have flipped that and they are beginning to resemble grand juries," Baldwin tweeted Wednesday.

Oliver and actor Dustin Hoffman appeared at an event Monday in New York City celebrating the 20th anniversary of 1997 cult classic "Wag the Dog." At the event, Oliver took the opportunity to grill Hoffman over allegations he sexually harassed a 17-year-old girl in 1985.

Similarly, Colbert on Monday confronted former NBC "Access Hollywood" host Billy Bush over his role in the now infamous "grab 'em by the pussy" tape of then-candidate Donald Trump released in the lead-up to the 2016 presidential election.

Turning political has paid dividends for both comedians. The pair have enjoyed high ratings and wide social media exposure during the Trump era.

Baldwin too has been rewarded for his take on the administration, having won an Emmy Award in September for his unflattering portrayal of President Trump on "Saturday Night Live."
