In its first episode appearance, the TV is in the kitchen. It shows news about a fraud health inspector wanting free food and Mr. Krabs and SpongeBob think that he is the legitimate Health Inspector. It later shows a photo of the fraud that looks completely different from the legit one that they thought they murdered shortly afterwards that was actually unconscious.
Mr. Krabs swears to be generous. He moves the TV from the kitchen into the main part of the restaurant. Afterwards, a blue fish is watching TV. After Mr. Krabs realizes he was awake, he turns it off and erases the blue fish's memory of watching the possible slideshow.
It gives Mr. Krabs, Squidward, Patrick, and Sandy information about SpongeBob's whereabouts. Later, it says that bubbles are spreading like a virus in New Kelp City as part of a new pro-bubble law caused by "Mayor CheeseHead BrownPants."
