    how do I use

    How and when can I use:
    'switch off the TV' or 'switch the TV off'
    'bring in the paper' or 'bring the paper in'?

    Thank you

    Do you mean are they interchangeably usable? The answer is yes, and which you use is your choice.

    Re: how do I use

    Anglika is of course absolutely right, but be careful if instead of "the TV" you use a pronoun you must put it between switch and off.

    'switch off the TV' - Correct
    'switch the TV off' - Correct
    'switch it off' - Correct


    'switch off it' - Wrong

    The same is true for your other example too.
