How are you connecting....? HDMI to an HDMI input on a HD TV? It can be a little tricky to get it going, NTS PAL settings need to be right too. Post back with specs. of TV and MB

No, you just see the extended Desktop. If you move your mouse pointer to the right, you see it on the TV.
To see the contents of the MBA's display on the TV:
System Preferences > Displays >> Arrangement >>> Mirror Displays (but know, that the display with the lowest resolution determines the maximum resolution used on both, thus one display will have a lower than native resolution, except when both displays have the same native resolution)
