    check your Displays preferences.

    In System Preferences -> Displays.

    You can define if you want the external display (your TV) to mirror your Mac Screen or to use it as a second screen. If for 2nd screen you define in which one the apple menu will be.
    Also there is a button to gather windows so you can see tje settings for both screens in your Mac.
