Easy-Bake for him

Hasbro announced Monday that it’s redesigning the Easy-Bake Oven, just days after a 13-year-old New Jersey girl launched an online campaign demanding that the toy be made more boy-friendly.

The film will air on HBO — except the part about the Monica Lewinsky scandal, which will be shown at midnight on Cinemax.
