I'm new to the Telerik/KendoUI grid and I'm trying to render a line graph via JavaScript in my MVC View.  I've passed the values and they're producing funky results, so I tried hard-coding some simple integers in and... that's now working.  But whenever I put in my Model data, the graph looks awful.  It's a graph for a full day, 24 hours; I know that's a lot of data points, but there must be some way to make it look better.  Below is the code for the Model-based chart and I've included a pic of the graph with its values.  Series1 (today) and Series 2 (yesterday) are the plotted points and Series 3 should be the x-axis [hour]:  


Any help would be greatly appreciated!

01.    var today = '@Html.Raw(Json.Encode(@Model.ApprovedToday))';
02.    var yesterday = '@Html.Raw(Json.Encode(@Model.ApprovedYesterday))';
04.    /**************HARD-CODED VALUES ***********/
05.    //testing
06.    //today = new Array(1, 5, 3, 11, 17);
07.    //yesterday = new Array(7, 4, 22, 11, 0);
09.    $('#chartNew2').kendoChart({
10.        theme: 'metro',
11.        seriesDefaults: {
12.            type: 'line',
13.            style: 'smooth'
14.            //type: 'column',
15.            //stack: true
16.        },
17.        series: [
18.            {
19.                name: 'Today',
20.                data: today,
21.                color: '#609'
22.            },
23.            {
24.                name: 'Yesterday',
25.                data: yesterday,
26.                color: '#f03'
27.            }
28.        ]
29.    });

Hello Justin,

The provided configuration looks OK (jsBin example), however it is incomplete and I am not able to determine the reason for the illustrated issue. Is it possible to provide an isolated runnable example which reproduces the issue and which I can test locally? This way I would be able to check what exactly is gong wrong and provide concrete recommendations. Thank you in advance for your time and cooperation.
