You can use MythControls or MythWeb to map a key that's on the remote to
"Status Screen".  In SVN trunk (and soon 0.21), it remembers which
section of the status screen you were last on, so you can leave it on
Machine Status or Autoexpire List or ...

Even better, in 0.21, you can set up Myth to automatically mark programs
as watched when you exit at the end of the recording.  Then, Myth can
autoexpire watched programs first.  That way, even if she doesn't delete
shows after watching them, Myth can do it in a very sensible order.
