How to convert JSON date to JavaScript Date

I recently faced a problem while creating HTML table from JSON object list. The object list was generated by an ASP.Net web service and it had a Date field in it. On client side the date value was coming something like /Date(1383202800000)/. I want to show it in regular Human readable date format something like "Thu Oct 31 2013".

Here is the simple solution for this.
//Convert JSON field to date.
var d = new Date(parseInt(obj[prop].toString().replace("/Date(", "")));
//Check the type of converted object
if ( === "[object Date]") {

I hope this solution will save you some valuable hours.
