You might "see" things better on TV, but you don't feel things the same way. One jab might be a light rangefinder that marks an opponent up, the other might be a booming ramrod that breaks an opponent up. They look the same on TV, but are very different in person.
Judges are not taking the punches!
The bottom line is the coverage via TV has better angles and overall by far better coverage.
The judge is looking through the ropes, and at times may have their vision blocked, or they might not be able to see both fights equally.
