Actor and comedian Jon Lovitz took aim at the politicization of late-night comedy, calling out liberal hosts Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and Seth Meyers during an exclusive interview with FOX News Digital.Lovitz, who’s been a comedy icon for nearly 40 years since his days as a “Saturday Night Live” cast member, was asked about the transformation of comedy over the years and drew attention to how polarizing late-night shows have become since the Trump era. “I don’t like it. I don’t like it,” Lovitz said.

This contrasts with today.“It’s their show. They can do whatever they want.
But you’re asking me, do I like it, and I’m like, no,” Lovitz said. “If I want the news, I’ll watch the news. I’m not watching those shows.
