By Scott D. Pierce Deseret News This may very well come back to haunt Gary Scott Thompson when viewers get a look at "Knight Rider." "Gary really was given sort of carte blanche when we brought him on board -- to not be limited by what had been done in the two-hour movie," said executive producer Doug Liman. So, in other words, Thompson will get all the credit or all the blame for the new "Knight Rider," which premieres at 7 p.m. on NBC/ Ch. 5. And odds are he's not going to be showered...
