Yes, they can get toasty, but unless you have the TV mounted inside a
cabinet just barely big enough for it I wouldn't worry about it. If
it's out in the open , on a stand or hung on a wall I just wouldn't
bother. I've got a couple of Sharps that have been in use for roughly
three years without any issues.

In any case you'd want to pull the heat out of the top of a device or
area it's housed in. If you've got the TV in a cabinet you could mount
a fan in an upper corner of the section the TV is housed in and
exhaust the warm air out the back of the cabinet.
