which name is more valuable

I am not in the domaining business. I am planning to start a website on a specific subject. This subject is a 3 letter noun that I'd rather not disclose here. I'll call it xyz for purposes of this discussion. I'm trying to decide what premium domain name to purchase. The current xyz.com site is parked and doing nothing, but I can't afford it. I have the opportunity to purchase xyz.tv and xyzd.com. The xyzd.com domain name makes it sound like the past tense of xyz, so it is reasonable. Prices for these names are in the 4K-20k range. The site will be primarily a video blogging site about xyz and will earn money through affiliate xyz programs, so the xyz.tv name sounds really good to me. Which domain name would be most likely to rank higher on search engines for the xyz search term? Thank you so much in advance for your advice.
