PC Monitors are far superior at displaying Video to Televions, the only reason it looks worse is because they're far superior.

Another problem that can appear on PCs it having a buggy deinterlacing setup, pixel adaptive deinterlacers like those used in Cyberlink are ideal, but a lot of software just uses field by field display OR weaves each field together
It's not about what camera you use or how much it cost.
It's about what you shoot,
how you shot it,
and how you edit it :P
