The A.V. Club is owned by The Onion; however, the site is not specifically satirical.

They are more of an entertainment news site, though they maintain a decidedly humorous slant. They might have satire in their Comedy section, but it’s not the ‘Gotchya!’ sort of satire.

Looking at three random articles:

Insane Clown Posse’s FBI lawsuit thrown out; Juggalos are gang members now — Mostly True.

Pornhub asks users to stop posting videos of Germany fucking Brazil — Yup.

Robin Thicke managed to sell 530 copies of his new album in the UK — And again, Yup.

AVClub is not only funny, but it’s better written than most sites, satirical or no — and has a pleasant, easy-to-read layout!
