They can. You need an hdmi cable to connect the two.

You also need an adapter such as a MHL or Slimport connector if using an HDMI cable if your phone supports it. It's one or the other if your phone supports it, Samsung uses MHL and others such as LG use slimport
There are some phones that have a Micro HDMI port so with those you'd need a HDMI to Micro HDMI cable, I believe it's Sony that has these.
If your TV supports mirror link and your TV does it can connect wirelessly.
If you just have a TV with an HDMI port but isn't a smart TV you could also use a chromecast and connect any Android device to connect wirelessly to said TV.

You can stream many things from phone, tablet, Mac or PC to even a not-so-smart tv with the Chromecast as Paul mentions.
