No. If that happened I don't think any of my shows would be expired.  
The only real answer is to manually set your programs to auto-expire  
instead of automatically (and then make sure you have enough room for  
new recordings manually, as well). Something that *might* help is if  
you expire programs marked as Watched before other programs.
