    AFAIK, you can't. 2011 iMacs iMacs support Target Display Mode, but only when the device they are connected to is also a Thunderbolt-equipped Mac

    I do not believe that you will be able to connect a Wii directly to an iMac via thunderbolt. You will likely have to procure a USB video capture device. This will enable you to view Wii (and other analog video devices) on the Mac.

    Example (I do not own one, so I cannot recommend brand/model):
