Will be filming tomorrow in a Plasma/lcd retailer, they probably will have a lot of SD and HD programs on the plasmas/lcd's
Do i have to make any adjustments when shooting as we did with CRTs...

No, should be fine, they don't have the banding problem.

Just shoot as though it's a real-life scene, for lcd. But for plasma you night just have a problem with beating because plasma modulation is time-duration with multiple sub-fields. Just keep a close eye on your vf, and if you get problems experiment with the shutter. But you should be ok if the plasma does any sort of 100Hz job.
