TVs above fireplace

We have been looking at a lot of houses with online real estate sites, and it seems about 90% have the TV mounted way up high above the fireplace, usually because the fireplace is in the middle of the wall with no adjacent wall space large enough for a good sized TV.

Do people really sit with their heads angled 45 degrees back staring up at these TV's? Our 55" TV is sitting on a table with the center of the screen slightly below eye level from a seated position.

One of our requirements for the next house will be fireplace in the corner (or no fireplace at all) with a large enough wall space in the living room for a 55-65 inch TV and floorstanding speakers on either side.
