I am trying to put an image onto a TV. I used the Polygonal Lasso Tool, copied the second image, and then used Paste Into but the TV is just showing white...I am FAR from an expert with Photoshop.

Are you sure your blend mode is set to normal and your fill to 100%?

The quickest non-pro way to do it works if the image is exactly the right aspect ratio and you just need to have it tweaked to fit the screen. You paste the image in, then do Edit->Transform->Distort and then drag the corners to match the screen corners.

Alternately, if you need to crop bits off the image, you would paste the image first, scale it to fit the part of the image you want shown in the TV, then hide the image layer and use the polygon lasso tool like before. Once the selection is made, turn the image layer back on and go to the top menus: Layer-Layer Mask->Reveal Selection. 

Good luck!
