use the Log.i() method (with "CodeChallenge" as the tag) to write the show title.

Challenge 2 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.

CodeChallenge.java
// JSONObject 'jsonData' was loaded from data.json
JSONArray jsonShows = jsonData.getJSONArray("shows");
for(int i=0; i<= jsonShows.length(); i++) {
  JSONObject show=jsonShows.getJSONObject(i);
  Log.i("CodeChallenge", show.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
        }
    ]
}

Hi,

Index of an array starts from 0. In your for loop you are iterating over the last value stored in jsonShows. Change <= to < and you won't get a NullPointerException anymore.
