Yes, they produce a fair amount of heat. I can feel the heat from the back light on my LCD and plasmas also get warm. There is also a good amount that produced by the power supplies that radiates through the vent holes in the top.

Is it the plasma model?
If so, it is pretty common for any plasma set.
Plasma sets use from 2 to 4 x the amount of energy that a LCD uses.

yeah most tvs do.
its actually a great way to tell how energy efficient a tv is
when you are in the store, put your hand in front of it.
even some of the energy star models
let off some decent heat.
