I was thinking of relying on the one stud and then using like 6 hardcore wall anchors with bolts.
Are you installing an electrical outlet behind the tv for power? Also are you going to run the I/O cables through the wall?
If so maybe you could see if it's possible to install a stud at 18 inches or at least a jack stud 18 inches out tied to the main stud at 24 inches.
Check with a local contractor/installer.
