How can I get jQuery .get to return JSON data?

Hi Developers, 

I am trying to fetch information using AJAX from a URL. This URL will return a JSON response but I am having a great deal of trouble getting this to work. I am fairly new to using both AJAX and JSON so I am not quite sure as to what I am doing wrong. I am not receiving any output. Here's what I have so far:


<!doctype html>
    <meta content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv="Content - Type">
    <meta content ="utf-8" http-equiv="encoding">
    <title>My Javascript Practice</title>
    <script src=""></script>
    <noscript>JavaScript Must Be Enabled</noscript>
    <div id="pub">Parent Div</div>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="getList.js"></script>
var teamId = 883455;
var myUrl = "" + teamId + "?view=PUBLISHERS_FOR_TEAM";
$.get(myUrl, function(data){
    alert("load was performed");

Any help on above is really appreciated.

Hi Andrew,

May I suggest to use something like this:

  type: 'GET',
  url: myURL,
  data: yourDAta,
  dataType: 'jsonp',
  success: function(jsonData) {
  error: function() {
    alert('Error loading ');

Note the usage of jsonp over json
