Yup. TVs and other junk between the loudspeakers hurts imaging. Sometimes you just have to live with it. But if you can pull your speakers out more, the rear wave can bounce off the TV.

+2 Covering the tv during listening will help. A Skyline type diffuser would be good. Many of them are super lightweight and you can perhaps just mount some clips on them to slide over the tv frame and easily remove when watching.
Soundlab's website has some good info on room treatment advice specifically for dipoles. Oversimplifying: Make the end behind the speakers dead and the end behind your seat live. Cheers,
Adam, one more idea, a pro setup guy I know often suggests a diffusor at center between the speakers and absorption behind the speakers. I tried this and found it works better with my Soundlab electrostatics than diffusors did behind the speakers. Since you have the TV at center, that's why I mentioned the lightweight diffusor that you could easily move as needed. Cheers,
