Probably better posting in the General gear talk/Computers sub forum for this question. Still I'll give my opinion here. A 32" 1080P TV is going to make a really bad monitor. At that size you are only going to get around 64 pixels per inch. Since the launch of Windows 95 it has been designed to run on a monitor providing 96 PPI, and most standard resolution monitors offer resolutions that provide between 96 and about 110 PPI. These resolutions result in both relatively smooth looking, easy to read fonts and a decent amount of screen working space.
Conversely when it comes to this very low resolution you will find that not only do the fonts etc look large and jaggy, you actually end up with not a lot of space to work in. The only time that I would suggest a monitor that ran at that sort of resolution would be for someone running a dedicated gaming rig, where 1920×1080 pixels was sufficient. Even then I would suggest a monitor, not a TV, since such a monitor is likely able to run at a much higher frame rate.
Personally I would suggest looking around for a 27" 2550×1440 IPS monitor for the sort of work that you mention. If you shop around you should be able to find a computer monitor at around the same price as a TV. After all you are not including all the TV receiver electronics, that you won't need if you are not using it as a TV.
