Stephen Moyer and his wife Anna Paquin are still beaming about the ratings success of Thursday night's "The Sound of Music Live."
"It was more like 18 [million] actually," Paquin, 31, joked to ABC News when debating how many viewers the live revival pulled in. The "True Blood" stars sat down with ABC on Friday to talk about a new movie Paquin's starring in titled "Free Ride," which hit theaters next month.

Moyer, 44, who took on the role of Captain Georg von Trapp in Thursday's musical, said he's still on a high from his recreation of the 1950's Broadway hit and 1965 Oscar-winning movie.
"I think whenever you come off doing a run of something … you kind of go through this 'Woo hoo, oh my God' elation and then," he said. "I've only just got back, we stayed out there last night because we were in Long Island, so I'm kind of coming down I feel."

Moyer added that bringing in those kinds of numbers - 18.5 million according to Nielsen ratings - made co-star Carrie Underwood, the cast and the network very satisfied with the experience. "It was very good, I know they were very happy," he added.
