    During one practice of the show, the producers put in a survey question at the end of the game. After the run-through, Michael Brockman went to Mark Goodson and his staff and told them the front part of the game isn't that good, but he thought the survey question was terrific and asked Goodson if he could reformat the game around the survey material. Goodson agreed to change the structure of the game. In the new structure, two families would square off to guess the answers of survey questions, the first team to reach 200 points won the game and had a chance at more money. However, there was controversy over the fairness of the "steal". ABC president Fred Silverman wanted the "steal" to be dropped from the show Goodson however said the "steal" is what makes the game work and is the penalty for not having cleaned the board. In the end Goodson prevailed and the "steal" remained in the game.

    During vacation in Hawaii, Richard's manager called up Howard Felsher and telling him Richard really wants to have his contract reopened and would be mentally incapable from coming back from Hawaii to continue with the show unless the contract would be reopened. Howard advised Mark Goodson to not open the contract and if Dawson decides to quit the show, take the chance and let him quit because the show could stand on its own without Richard Dawson. However, the contract was reopened and Richard received an enormous salary of over $2,000,000 a year. Big bucks for a game show host in the 80's.

    The sound effects used on this show originally were used on "Showoffs" (1975). The bell clang for revealing answers was the bell which sounded whenever a teammate guessed the word correctly on "Showoffs". The dings for a #1 answer in the Face-Off, a family winning the game, and for answering the Fast Money round questions in the regulated amount of time were originally used on "Showoffs" for winning a game. The time's-up buzzer on "Showoffs" was used on this show as the strike buzzer. The time limits on Fast Money rounds were 15 seconds for first family member and 20 seconds for second family member, at answering the same five questions during the Fast Money rounds, originally.
