Los gustos socioeconómicos de los espectadores de reality shows urbanos y rurales (Reality TV) parecen diversos y pueden explicar los estilos de vida divergentes, especialmente con respecto a la exposición a los medios. Este artículo investigó comparativamente los niveles de audiencia de los programas de telerrealidad de los habitantes urbanos y rurales en el estado de Rivers, Nigeria, utilizando Quién quiere ser millonario como punto de apoyo del análisis y la discusión. Se recopilaron datos relevantes de 387 encuestados mediante un cuestionario diseñado, validado y administrado aleatoriamente en el Área de Gobierno Local de Port Harcourt (PHALGA), el Área de Gobierno Local de Obio-Akpor (OBALGA) y el Área de Gobierno Local de Emuoha (EMULGA), que fueron intencionalmente seleccionado como PHALGA y OBALGA constituían las áreas cosmopolitas, mientras que EMULGA se consideraba un entorno rural en el estado de Rivers de Nigeria. Usando la teoría motivacional y el concepto de entretenimiento-educación (EE), el artículo empleó métodos cuantitativos y cualitativos para examinar la percepción de la televisión de realidad (Reality TV) por parte de los habitantes urbanos y rurales y la influencia que el programa tiene sobre ellos. Los datos generados se analizaron y revelaron que había una diferencia significativa en los patrones de audiencia urbana y rural de la televisión de realidad. La conclusión a la que se llega es que el programa fue percibido positivamente como lo indica su amplia audiencia y su contenido muy educativo.
