* ''Press'' taped anywhere from 10 to 12 episodes every other weekend, save for vacation time (5 for Saturday and 5 for Sunday, 5 for Saturday and 6 for Sunday, or 6 for Saturday and 6 for Sunday). This would often result in cosmetic changes being made during certain weeks of shows (I.E. Pick-A-Corner debuted on a Tuesday, board sounds #2 and #3 each debuted on a Wednesday, Add-A-One debuted on a Thursday, and the 10 position in both board rounds was updated on a Friday). The reason for this otherwise odd production schedule was because The Carruthers Company was ''very'' efficient when it came to taping shows, and taping 6 episodes on Sunday helped save a lot of money. Initially, 10 was the norm, but it became 11 by Fall 1984.

[[note]] This specific animation was directly taken from Amex's "Do You Know Me?" campaign; it featured a Whammy in a business suit appearing in front of the player with a credit card in his hand. He outright asks, "Hello, do you know me?". The word Whammy is typed over the card, and it makes a "ca-ching!" sound, the exact moment where the contestant's score is deleted. [[/note]]

* Contrary to what TheOtherWiki says, Michael Larson's episode, which was split into #188A and #188B, was actually the fourth of a 5-show taping day on May 19, 1984. After 5 more episodes were taped the next day, the production crew investigated to see how Larson won $110,234. After finding out, they were changed for the next round of tapings in June, which began with the June 20 episode.

* ScrewedByTheNetwork: CBS moved it from 10:30 AM to 4:00 PM on January 6, 1986 so they could debut a revival of ''Series/CardSharks''. Although the change was promoted in-show during the week of December 30, 1985, certain comments from here onward appear to indicate the show's staff knew their days were numbered - on more than a few episodes following the timeslot change, Peter urges viewers that if they like ''Press'', tell a friend. In another episode, coincidentally the day the Round 2 values plummeted...

Tomarken stated that by the Fall of 1985, the contract for ''The Price is Right'', which aired immediately after ''Press'', was up for renewal, but the network was unable to pay Mark Goodson Productions the kind of money they wanted to continue ''Price'' on CBS. Goodson came up with the solution of taking over the 10:30 AM timeslot of ''Press''. Although the change was promoted in-show during the week of December 30, 1985, certain comments from here onward appear to indicate the show's staff knew their days were numbered - on more than a few episodes following the timeslot change, Peter urges viewers that if they like ''Press'', tell a friend.
