In "Nasty Patty," its first episode appearance, the TV was in the kitchen. It showed news about a fraud health inspector wanting free food and Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob thought him to be the legitimate Health Inspector. It later showed a photo of the fraud that looked completely different from the legit one that they thought they murdered shortly afterwards that was actually unconscious. It did not appear for the remainder of the episode.
In "Born Again Krabs," Mr. Krabs swore to be generous. He moved the TV from the kitchen into the main part of the restaurant. Afterwards, a blue fish was watching TV. After Mr. Krabs realized he was awake, he turned it off and erased the blue fish's memory of watching the possible slideshow.
