I believe you can just mirror the displays

You can do this by going to Apple Logo > Displays > Arrangement > Mirror Displays.

I assume you want to close the lid on your macbook and just use your TV?
You might need a app called caffeine to stop it from sleeping when you close the lid - here is a link Lighthead - Caffeine

No need for another app, just dim the display on the MacBook and leave it open.
