So I went out today and purchased Apple TV however after hooking it all up it will not show up in iTunes I am running the current version of iTunes and have tried troubleshooting it however it has not shown any results. Any ideas?

You just turn on home sharing in the Apple TV itself.

not entirely true...
it should show up in the airplay menu at the bottom right of the iTunes window.

other than that, make sure you have home sharing turned on in iTunes, then go to the "settings->computers" section on the tv, and sign in there

When in iTunes, should Apple TV show up in the menu on the left (where you have 'Library', 'Store', 'Genius', Playlists')?

One of the guides mentioned that it should show up in the bar on the left though in my case I have never seen it there.

No, the new Apple TV does not show up under devices. The first Generation was the only Apple TV to show up there. You were synced to the first gen, you only stream to the new TV
