Should I use a TV as a monitor?

I am planning on purchasing a new, larger monitor to connect to my 13" 2011 MacBook Pro. I'd like to consider the possibility of using a TV as a monitor, so I can possibly get a larger sized screen. However, I've never purchased a TV, only using someone else's old school hand-me-downs, so I know nothing about them. Looking for advice.

I'm considering either a 27" Viewsonic LED Monitor or a 30" to 32" tv. This will be for my office, where I use mainly Safari, Pages, Gmail, Keynote, Omnifocus, and a little iMovie.
I'd like some help learning the pros and cons of using a monitor vs a tv as a monitor for my setup. I'm a pretty technically savvy guy, but tvs are my Achilles heel, so any advice would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks, as always.
