It's the same exact principle that happens if a bank accidentally deposits someone else's money into your account.

You're not entitled to it, and they will take it back out, and if it appears you spent it knowing it wasn't yours, you could be charged with a crime.

He doesn't even have to return it - he just has to get out of the way when they come to retrieve it.

You folks want to talk about what is right or wrong... On that basis I can agree, but I am talking about a written on paper (ok, electrons) law that is on the books. Laws are not invalid just because you don't think they should be.
It is quite clearly about scams. When he bought the TV he essentially engaged in a contract with Amazon, that is not the same as coming home to find something from some company you never agreed to do business with. It is obvious to most of us that this is addressing the latter. Confirmed by the fact they arrested him and charged him.

How is Amazon not affected by this? Someone else ordered a TV set that they didn't receive, so I am sure that they have contacted Amazon wanting to know where it is. If they couldn't have gotten the mis-delivered set back, Amazon would have had to send out another TV to the correct purchaser, without charging him for it; so in this case, Amazon would have been out a TV.

The carrier mis delivered, not Amazon, they would be the ones on the hook for the cost of the replacement. If fed ex loses my package I contact fed ex, not the retailer who shipped it out.

Uh huh.

He called up Amazon and said "Hey, you guys sent me an 86-inch TV I didn't order," and they replied "Hey, man, it's cool, no biggie, just keep it, no charge!".

And you actually believe that? Seriously?

There aren't enough face-palms in the world...

That's a good example, but it will go right over the heads of those who think there's actually a law that says: FINDERS, KEEPERS.
