To do administrative tasks like this, I've always used Team Foundation Sidekicks:

This tool is very easy to use, and in addition to allowing you to undo checkouts (I've used it for your exact situation before), it also provides an easy way to summarize all the check-outs, workspaces, labels, and just about everything else.

There's a different version for each version of TFS - 2008, 2010, and 2012 - so make sure you download the correct version, but it's a great tool.
