Twenty inches deep on the bottoms and 12 on the top would look pretty good. Consider what material you will be using and see how you can maximize usage with as little waste as possible.

+1 What Alaskaguy said. For cabinet uppers, 11 1/4 is good. Add a face frame that is 3/4 inch thick and you have a 12 inch cabinet. That makes it easy to rip sheet goods and have very little waste.

Might as well cut rips 11 7/8” and get the most out of it.

I try to keep openings under 32 so you get 3 pieces out of the sheet,
plus the span is about as long as you would want anyway.

Making the TV sized for the biggest you may get is good.
Most of my clients mount the TV’s on an articulating arm and bring them out flush with the face.
I make frames to fit the TV and when they upgrade to a larger TV all you have to do is re-cut the frame to fit.

I would prefer 22” for the base if you have the room.
