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

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.

So
'switch off the TV' - Correct:-D
'switch the TV off' - Correct:-D
'switch it off' - Correct:-D

but

'switch off it' - Wrong:-(

The same is true for your other example too.
