Where am I get it wrong? I cannot figure out what is wrong with my code?

CodeChallenge.java
public static final String TAG = CodeChallenge.class.getSimpleName();
// JSONObject 'jsonData' was loaded from data.json
JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONArray("shows");

for(int i = 0; jsonShows.length(); i++){
  JSONObject data = jsonShows.getJSONObject(i); 
  Log.i(TAG,  data.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
        }
    ]
}

You've got a good start on it but there are two issues. First you don't need to create the TAG constant. In fact it will cause trouble with the challenge compiler if you do. It's easier to just use the sting in the Log.i() call an leave it at that. The second is that you need to compare the length to i, because the comparison needs to be true or false, not a number.

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

for(int i = 0; i < jsonShows.length(); i++){
  JSONObject data = jsonShows.getJSONObject(i); 
  Log.i("CodeChallenge",  data.getString("title"));
}
