There are charts and calculations for TV size (diagonal measurement) vs. viewing distance. One recommendation I came across is for viewing distance to be 1.2 times TV size to 1.9 times TV size. (My main TV viewing distance is 1.8 times the TV size.) When a friend and I went shopping for the TV, he thought it was too big for the room I intended to use it in, but I found it quite comfortable. (At the store I paced out the distance the TV would be from my eyes and viewed the TV from that distance. I did the same thing when I replaced my bedroom TV just a couple months ago.)

What really matters is how comfortable you and Mrs. xSSMBB are with viewing the TV from your normal viewing distance. Some people prefer to be closer; some further back. (That may be one of the reasons why different people sit different distances from the screen at a theater.)
