Translation:This TV is old.

I thought furui was for "ancient" things. Wouldn't it sound rude to use that in someone's house?

- この is a demonstrative determiner modifying テレビ, not a pronoun which would be これ.
- は follows テレビ and marks it as the topic, not *この.
- the adjective 古い (ふるい) is predicative not attributive. if it were attributive, it would come before the noun it modifies, 古いテレビ.
"this is an old tv" would have been 「これは古いテレビです」
