Your controller must return JSONP data (not just JSON)

jQuery send additional param to you controller ("callback" by default, I 
my $cb = $c->req->param("callback");

So View::JSON should return something like this: $cb($data);
Where $data is [{"value":"1","label":"betty"},{"value":"2","label":"jane"},

And Content-type header probably should be "application/javascript"

Or look at jQuery.autocomplete manual to use JSON (instead of JSONP)
