Nytt på nytt (literally: "The News Anew" or "News on news") is a Norwegian version of the British TV comedy panel show Have I Got News for You (made by Hat Trick Productions for the BBC). The programme, which goes out on Friday nights on NRK1, is a competition between a pair of two-person teams, with one permanent panellist and one guest player on each team.

The aim is for each of the teams to score points by correctly answering questions based on the week's news. In practice, however, the point-scoring element is secondary: although the final scores do get a brief mention at the end of the show, the entertainment chiefly comes from the witty remarks made by the panelists and the banter that passes between them.

When the show was first launched, in the spring of 1999, Jon Almaas was the host, and the permanent panellists were Knut Nærum and Anne-Kat. Hærland. The current host is Bård Tufte Johansen, with permanent panellists Johan Golden and Pernille Sørensen. Sørensen replaced Ingrid Gjessing Linhave from the spring of 2015. Ingrid appeared in her last show on 20 February 2015. Over the years Nytt på nytt has grown to become the most popular weekly show on Norwegian television, with more than a million viewers every week.
