Well calibrate the thing! It's a 5 minute job.
And yeah - all that layout is doing is spreading it out and making you look further without adding any room. I typically run out of space vertically before width-wise. Those timelines can rack up height, even worse in FCP. Width is the lesser problem.
I'd have some desktop showing with access to other resource windows as well. Make it like 2 monitors.
Then I'd say "Dear, I've bought a killer TV upgrade for the bedroom," and go again. :-)
