1. Any TV stations in your area still broadcasting analog signals?

2. Is your VCR capable of receiving digital TV signal or do you have a converter box?

Impendance, element length for the medium wavelength of the TV channels and some other things need to match up.
Just check for yagi antennas in Google and you will find plenty of info on how to make a proper tV antenna.
