What cable would get me the best result?
I just order the 27' iMac 2011 and wanted to know if I can take advantage of the thunderbolt ports on the iMac by connecting my HDTV directly to the thunderbolt ports some how.
Or is there Thunderbolt to HDMI converter?

Thunderbolt is mainly a standard for data transfer. If you are connecting only one display, there is no benefit over DisplayPort, and, in fact, the thunderbolt cable is really only using the DisplayPort standard.
If you would like to connect it to your iMac to your TV, you can use either a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI adapter and an HDMI cable, or you can get a Mini DisplayPort to HDMI cable to either extend or mirror your iMac's display onto your television.
If you would like to truly take advantage of thunderbolt, I suggest buying a Promise Pegasus 4TB RAID system from Apple, it will let you see just how fast thunderbolt really is.
