Code challenge question

Not sure why my code doesn't work. Thanks!

CodeChallenge.java
// JSONObject 'jsonData' was loaded from data.json
JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONArray("data");

for (int i=0;i<jsonShows.length();i++){
 JSONObject obj=jsonShows.getJSONObject(i); 
  Log.i("CodeChallenge", obj.getString("title"));
}
data.json
{
    "name":"Netflix Playlist",
    "shows":[
        {
            "title":"Doctor Who",
            "season":8,
            "episode":3
        },
        {
            "title":"Arrow",
            "season":1,
            "episode":10
        },
        {
            "title":"Portlandia",
            "season":4,
            "episode":5
        }
    ]
}

I looked up some Java and "name" and "shows" doesnt seem right, but maybe youre doing it a different way? For example:

string name="Netflix Playlist to initialize & thereafter in code name = "any string"

dont know why you have "" around variable name.

That's JSON, not java, that file was given and I only modified the java file. Anyway I solved the problem already, thank you for the help!
