Is power restored to the TV when the A/C compressor shuts off?
If so, you may have a priority load-shedding relay, which allows two high-current devices to share a single limited current source. They are configured to shut off one load when the other comes on, thus limiting the total current.
These are often used to allow the A/C and a microwave share a 30 amp source. It doesn't make much sense to put a low-current device like a TV on one, but it is certainly possible.
