@djbox9, you just need to request zone temperatures on the "Output Variables" tab as shown here. Then you can view time series results in "ResultsViewer" application.

Actually since our Standard OpenStudio report already requests zone temperatures for use in the zone conditions table, you can just go to ResultsViewer on your model for hourly zone temperatures.
