If you are short term in the space,

buy a 3/4in 18mm plywood.

Cut it just wide enough to span the studs behind the sheetrock. You might need to span two full studs. about 32 inches. Depends on if the center of your mounting falls across one stud.If you are lucky, you will only need to span 16 inches.

Paint to match the wall.
Put some of the thin sticky non skid feet on the back where it will hit the studs.
This will stop it from messing up any texture on the wall.
Drill the screw holes through the plywood and into the studs. 4 holes or 6 holes if you had to span two studs. Drilling all of the holes first makes it easier to find any problems. (like missing the studs)
Wait 30 minutes in case you hit a pipe. Check for leaks! Plumbers should put metal plates on studs that have plumbing, but older houses won’t have them.

put in some strong screws.

mount the TV on the plywood.

When your lease is up, back out the screws and fill the holes with color matching toothpaste!
