I have a array that comes from PHP as a JSON array. I'd like to splice new items in the middle of the array. The code I have to do this is this one:

Code:
                                var k = 1;
  				if ( new_event_date > cur_event_date ) {
					var splice_index = k - 1;
					$(this).before(print_nav);
					var current_event_id = $(this).attr('id');
					current_event_id = current_event_id.substr(2);
					alert ('event id '+event_id+' current id '+current_event_id);
					for ( var n=0; n<events_data.event_id.length; n++ ) { 
						if ( current_event_id == events_data.event_id[n]["0"] ) {
							events_data.event_id.splice(splice_index,0,event_id);
							alert('save event id '+event_id+' splice_index '+n+' data event id '+events_data.event_id[n]["0"]);
							events_data.event_title.splice(splice_index,0,event_title);
							alert('save event id '+event_id+' splice_index '+n+' data event title '+events_data.event_title[n]["0"]);
							events_data.selected_source.splice(splice_index,0,selected_source);
							events_data.channel_id.splice(splice_index,0,channel_id);
							events_data.channel_name.splice(splice_index,0,channel_text);
							events_data.event_site.splice(splice_index,0,event_site);
							events_data.event_url.splice(splice_index,0,event_url);
							events_data.start_date.splice(splice_index,0,start_date_string);
							events_data.start_time.splice(splice_index,0,start_time_string);
							events_data.end_date.splice(splice_index,0,end_date_string);
							events_data.end_time.splice(splice_index,0,end_time_string);
							events_data.event_notes.splice(splice_index,0,event_notes);
							break;
						}
					}
					return false;
				}
events.data is a json array of arrays from PHP. The splice method only seems to put the first char of the string within the new item in the array. For example, if for event_id e901, events_data.event_id[splice_index]["0"] only prints "e", similarly for the events_data.event_title. What must I fix in the script to put the entire string?
