Maybe you could set up two different schedules.  One that records (for 
example) CSI on your CBS station only weekly in that timeslot and 
another that records CSI on any channel at any time (for SpikeTV). You 
can set different retention policies on each program  and I believe that 
the weekly timesolt program will take precendence over the any time any 
channel program when scheduling occurs.
