Color differences between TV/LCD

Ok, so I know that the way color is displayed on my LCD computer screen is totally different than the way a TV displays it. If I create a video that looks great on my computer, it looks so over-saturated on a TV. But if I make it look great on the TV, it looks dull on the computer. I find that even using the WFM,VS to correct my images doesn't do that much good. While it may look better (mathmatically), it doesn't necessarily look better on a TV.

- But what do other people do to create video that will be used on both?
- What if I don't know how my video will be shown?
- How is it that the DVDs I buy (or rent) seem to look the same on both? (or at least, there is not as huge a color difference as my projects!)
- What can I do to overcome both the anxiety and the technical hurdles!?
- Does it sound like I just don't know what I'm doing?
