Under scheduling options for the recording profile, you can set the 
profile to inactive, which suspends all recording of that program.  I'm 
doing this now for Jon Stewart and Steven Colbert as I know that 
they're reruns until after New Year's, but the listings aren't always 
accurate so I've just inactivated both profiles and will reactivate 
them after New Year's.
