Probably not. The dot pitch on a TV is generally WAY worse than a computer monitor. I know it sounds like "resolution=resolution, 1920x1080=1920x1080" but as a rule it just ain't so. Small computer text is MUCH harder to read on a TV, even at 1080p.
Actually, it just IS so.
Dot pitch was independent of resolution on CRTs, but with LCDs it is literally the physical dimensions divided by the native resolution. Any 24" 1920x1080 display will be .27mm.
I'm using a 22" 1080p TV as a monitor in my bedroom, and 2 multihead rigs including 3 CRT monitors, an LCD monitor, and another 22" HDTV on my desk, so I know what I'm talking about.
