it is bad in the tube type they have what is called a ballast which would be to big for the smaller compact type so they use a starter which does the same job. I would take it back and ask for a replacement it should not flicker
There might be some small buzzing going on I have the energy saving bulbs in every lamp I own and they give off a small buzz but nothing that I can hear when the TV is on.
I would really take it back and ask for a replacement it should not flicker and if the buzzing is loud there might be a problem with just that lamp
