In the situation you mention the TiVo will remember that you'd recorded (and deleted) the recording for 28 days (there's that number again) from the time you deleted it. (I'm pretty sure it's from date of deletion, not date of recording; but I'm not 100% possitive)
Whether the TiVo would record it again would depend on your season pass setting. There are 3 options:
1) New only - The TiVo wouldn't record it again because it would remember it had been recorded for long enough that additional airings would no longer be considered new
2) New and repeats - The TiVo might record it again, but not for 28 days from when you deleted it.
3) All (with duplicates) - The TiVo will record it again whenever it's on; even if you watched it yesterday. You explicitely told the TiVo you wanted all the duplicate airings recorded
