It was up by six-tenths of a point from the previous Tuesday.
Telemundo's El Señor de los Cielos (1.2) fell one-tenth in the demo, while CBS' Zoo (1.2) improved by two-tenths. Zoo has turned out to be a pleasant surprise for CBS this summer.

Spike's Ink Master and TNT's Rizzoli & Isles (.7) each moved up in the 18-49 demo by one-tenth.
HBO's Hard Knocks - Houston opened to a .5 rating in the 18-49 demo and 826,000 total Live+SD viewers. One of primetime cable's most-heavily DVRed unscripted programs, total viewership will easily surpass 1 million when it's all said and done.
