Can someone pls help me, this task is very important to me, the code in the multi line comments is the code I wrote which is giving me an error. The task says: The data in the file data.json has been loaded into a JSONObject named jsonData. Using data.json as your guide, create a JSONArray object named jsonShows and set it to the array of shows from data.json using the jsonData object.

// JSONObject 'jsonData' was loaded from data.json

JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONObject("shows");
Show[] shows = new Show[jsonShows.length()];

for (int i = 0; i < jsonShows.length(); i++) {
    JSONObject jsonShow = jsonShows.getJSONObject(i);
    Show show = new Show();


    shows[i] = show;
    "name":"Netflix Playlist",
            "title":"Doctor Who",

Hi Dam

If you haven't solved it try this:

JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONArray("shows"); for (int i = 0; i < jsonShows.length(); i++) { JSONObject jObj = jsonShows.getJSONObject(i); Log.i("CodeChallenge", jObj.getString("title")); }

Happy coding (:
