De Wereld Draait Door (literally: "The World keeps turning"; can also mean "The World is going crazy") is a talk show on Dutch television. It is the Netherlands longest running, regularly scheduled entertainment program and the second most-watched tv program on Dutch television in 2016, except for the news.
The chat, conducted at a large table, is hosted by Matthijs van Nieuwkerk and a guest co-host who changes daily. Guests are politicians, celebrities, artists, or simply people involved in projects or organizations that are topics of interest. The show contains a mixture of news, information, television bloopers and general entertainment. Frequent guests and panelists are Jan Mulder, Yvon Jaspers, Halina Reijn, Giel Beelen, Mathijs Bouman, and Marc-Marie Huijbregts. Each show has a live performance of a band in the studio. The show's closing sequence is Lucky TV, a small movie clip that features a parody of news with changed voice-over text added to the video.
House poet Nico Dijkshoorn has a weekly column in the show, usually on Wednesday.
DWDD University is a series of special episodes, in which a professional expert in a certain area holds a one-and-a-half hour long lecture to a general audience. It commenced in 2012 with a lecture by IAS director Robbert Dijkgraaf about the big bang.
