CBS is involved as the producer/distributor much as they are in Person Place Or Thing.

One more thing: when I began attending game show tapings in 1984 the announcer warmed up the audience and kept the energy level up during breaks. Forty years later the floor manager gives the audience a gentle scolding to do our jobs and laugh at the jokes.

When Prime Video briefly had SIR86.  One of the episodes was the pilot.

I think that was yet another case of a show burying its early-taped episodes during the airing cycle.

Supporting that theory, the couple that won the game on that episode just so happened to be one of the couples on the debut.

There were photos in Broadcasting & Cable of Joe hosting with 3 couples, as in the UK, which would strike me as more pilot-like.

What is the story behind the TTTT pilot? Did the tape get thrown in with the rest of the tapes meant for air or is there something a bit sexier?

All I know is the pilot was accidentally aired on the East Coast feed.  By the time it got to the West Coast, the correct episode was aired.
Just an accident and nothing more. One coda to this--Richard Kline found out the pilot was airing because his mother called him to say "I thought you didn't get that job..." The next day, Mark Goodson sent him a fruit basket and a check for $10,000; I don't think he was in any way obligated, but Goodson basically gave Kline a week's salary for hosting the show because that pilot aired.

Even though it was an accident, it probably created an obligation to Richard Kline.  I bet in the contract to host the pilot, there was language that specifically said this was NOT FOR BROADCAST, so this would be a breach of contract. Even if Richard would not consider going for payment, I think his agent would have.  Mark Goodson was smart enough to realize this and sent a check for $10,000 to hold off any future lawsuit(s).

Kinda technical, but several years back when Netflix had Jeopardy reruns, they uploaded a playlist which contained every season premiere up to that point. However, instead of the Season 1 premiere, they (accidentally?) uploaded the '84 pilot.

Really wish they'd do that again.

It happened again when J! reruns premiered on Pluto TV, but I believe the glitch was fixed in future airings.
