I'm seriously considering hanging a flat screen tv, possibly a 32" or so, on the bathroom wall so I can watch the action from the two captains chairs up front. It's been suggested that the wall may not be strong enough to support the mounted weight of 20 plus lbs. Has anyone tackled this one yet? I'd sure welcome some discussion here on practicle ways to safely accomplish this. Also, what is the best way to run the wires for this project?

If you push the center of bath wall and have some resistance you have a 2x2 stud there. Look for staples to find center and mount your mounting braket for LCD there. LCD is light 20 lbs so should be ok.
AS to wiring I do not know what you have on back side of that wall if a medicine cabinet you could drill into cab and place outlet for power and COAX cable could come up thru floor into same space. If you know how to fish walls nows the time to learn.

You can remove the door frame and add some backing n the wall to support the TV.
