Alec Baldwin rips Oliver, Colbert for turning talk shows into 'grand juries'

"Talk shows were once promotional pit stops for some blithe chit chat about movies, etc", he tweeted through his foundation.

The heated interaction occurred while Oliver was moderating a panel for the 20th anniversary of "Wag the Dog", not on his HBO series, "Last Week Tonight".

Oliver heightened tensions with Hoffman by saying his defense and subsequent vague apology "feels like a dismissal".

It seems unlikely that the man whose recent tweets have suggested that a Republican representative must be oxygen-deprived ("the air must be thin in Utah") and condemned Bernie Sanders supporters who failed to vote for Clinton, and who has long considered running for political office, would wind up with a talk show that avoids taking a political stance.

Bush was sacked by NBC a year ago for his role in the highly publicized recording, but he appears to be attempting a comeback/apology tour of sorts.

Baldwin's talk show "criticism" (or whatever it is) comes at an interesting time, with Baldwin now in talks with ABC for a talk show of his own.

ABC is reportedly working on a program that would resemble Baldwin's popular Here's The Thing radio show. However, details behind the talk show have not been totally hashed out and the network has not made any official announcements yet.
