Yep, just plug them in, push the tv/video button on your TV, and you should see your desktop on your TV. If not, you may need to enable external video on your laptop by pushing the appropriate function combo (on my HP, it's FN+F4).
Just remember that if you have an older TV, you probably won't be able to make out the font unless you drop the resolution to below 640x480. So you may have to tweak some settings on your laptop to get an optimal view.
