Monitor pixels are square, TV ones are rectangular.

A 1920 x 1080 grid ("1080p") is proportional to 16:9, the aspect ratio of a widescreen HDTV.

Perhaps you are thinking of DVD-Video, where the 720 x 480 grid results in skinny pixels (because a 640 x 480 grid is what would be proportional to the 4:3 aspect ratio of a standard TV).
