Either you do this:
for(var i:int=0; i < e.length; i++)
                var test:TextField = new TextField();
                test.text = e[i].channel;

Open in new window

or this:
var test:Array = new Array();
for(var i:int=0; i < e.length; i++)
                test[i] = new TextField();
                test[i].text = e[i].channel;
