Why not just turn to another channel? Block the offensive channel if you feel it's necessary. More than likely, there are other people who enjoy the programming, so it's unlike you'll be able to influence the channel's executives to change its broadcasting format. Like many other forms of art, it's all in the eye of the beholder.

It depends on the channel.  If the channel is cable, there is nothing you can do except not watch the channel.  If you are worried about kids, you can often set your remote to lock out certain channels.

The first thing to do, I suppose, would be to contact the network responsible for airing the program. You could make your feelings known directly to the source of the content. Beyond that, the federal regulatory agency responsible for television content is the Federal Communications Commission (FCC.) In fact, the FCC website links directly to a message center where people can air precisely the kinds of complaints you are describing.
