Huh. My Jotul 3 sits in the mouth of my fireplace, and my Sharp LCD big screen sits above the mantle. I regularly have both fired up without any problems at all.
Granted, I don't run the stove full blast. If I did, the room would get uncomfortably warm. I also have a ceiling fan in the room which I usually turn on low to help distribute the heat to other rooms.
The TV will probably take the heat better than you believe it will. I've watched TV with the temps well into the 90s in the summer, and it was OK. My living room doesn't get nearly that hot in the winter with the stove on.
