Joseph was from SW PA, and was profiled on KDKA the night this episode aired. He was the biggest winner in CBS TPIR history at the time, as the daytime record was $54,772(A Kennedy contestant won over $68K and another Kennedy contestant won over $60K from Golden Road but did not win their showcase which was worth $40K). Admittedly the prizes were sexed up a little, particularly in the Showcases, but nothing like the prizes on the 2000s primetime shows. This episode debuted five digit Lucky Seven and Any Number, as well as the new Any Number set. However, some episodes taped before this that aired in September still used the old Any Number board.
