Other people's settings won't necessarily look good on your particular TV - there are too many variables in environment, personal preference, and most importantly - variations between the different cable and broadcast channels.
And if for instance you came up with settings that looked fantastic for The Today Show on NBC-HD, as soon as you switch to Good Morning America on ABC-HD the colors and skin tones look different and suddenly those settings don't look as good.
I use our local KNBC-HD local news broadcast over antenna to adjust the picture on the various TVs i set up (simple eyeball adjustments using the regular menus). I get the skin tones looking as accurate as possible as i consider that the most important thing to have accurate colors on.
