How to change list content after applying a function in Python

  list, python

I wrote a little program that inserts an element in a list. The program uses a binary search algorithm to find the spot where the new element should be allocated. I’m having trouble to change the original list content. What’s wrong in my code?

def Insert(TAB,V):

    for i in range(0, len(TAB)):

        j, count = binarySearch(TAB,V)

        TAB = TAB[:j] + [V] + TAB[j:]

        return "index =",j,"comparisons =", count
