Is there a port to connect to a TV screen?
The mini displayport can connect the MBP to a TV screen using an adapter.
Let it be via HDMI or VGA etc...
What Mac do you have? What inputs does your TV have? In 9 cases out of 10, it's possible, just use Mini DVI/DP to DVI/VGA/HDMI adapter

mini dvi -> vga/hdmi/etc..
or mini display port -> vga/hdmi/etc..
I wonder why they don't put a HDMI port on the laptop?
I have the Mac book pro
Which type of MacBook Pro? Glass screen on silver screen.
And Apple don't add HDMI because nobody would use it, cos it sucks as a connector for PCs
i connected my macbook pro up with a hdmi and tbh it sucks balls, games are ok but the desktop seems to run at a weird res so things seem blurry.
If you connected it to a TV, then that is expected as a TV is not meant for displaying computer content, especially such small items as text and menus.
Part of the reason might be that HDMI requires a royalty to be paid, whereas DisplayPort is royalty-free.
Just FYI, I found this today. It's the first one I've found that carries both video and sound.
Then switch to the right resolution and you won't have a problem.
