LOL.. really?.. and this is based on what data?
All you need do is stand in the stores and watch.. or even make small talk with people shopping for them. Picture size and clarity(usually in that order) is a guys number one priority.. and slimness would be for those women who care only about "skinny" aesthetic's.
But if you would happen to be right?.. then all the dozens and dozens of people I know who actually own them.. and still continue to make comments about the crispness and clarity of the shows and movies they watch on these TV's must not be considered "average joe's", I guess.
Also consider that even over the air is now broadcast in HD.. and the cheaper DVD players have HD upscaling now too. Not to mention the ever increasing popularity of Bluray.
