how to do so, from the FCC website

How to File a Complaint

Complaints may be filed via:

U.S. Mail sent to:
Enforcement Bureau, Investigations and Hearings Division
445 12th Street, S.W.
Washington, D.C. 20554

Electronic Mail at [email protected]
Toll Free: 1-888-CALL-FCC (1-888-225-5322)
Fax: 1-888-418-0232

You can help us resolve your complaint more quickly by providing as much of the following information as possible: (1) the date and time the material was aired; (2) the call sign, channel, or frequency of the station; (3) the city and state where the program was viewed; and (4) as many details as possible about the content of the broadcast to help the FCC determine whether the material was obscene, profane, or indecent. You may support your allegations by a full or partial tape or transcript, or by providing a significant excerpt, but these are not required. The key is to provide enough information for staff to determine both the specific content of the complained-of material and the context in which it was broadcast. It is also helpful to include your address, e-mail address, phone number and time zone.

If you choose to submit a recording, you should send the recording to Federal Communications Commission, Investigations & Hearings Division/Enforcement Bureau, 9300 East Hampton Drive, Capital Heights, MD 20743. Any documentation of the programming becomes part of the Commission's records and cannot be returned.

The FCC has requested comment from the public on a proposed complaint form for obscene, profane, and/or indecent material. See Proposed Complaint Form. The proposed form (not yet available for use) will provide the public an easy method for submitting to the Commission all of the information that will help staff resolve complaints as expeditiously as possible.
