The A. V. Club is an online newspaper and entertainment website featuring reviews and other articles that examine films, television, books and other elements of pop culture media; the A. V. Club was created in 1993 as a supplement to The Onion. While it was a part of The Onion’s 1996 website launch, The A. V. Club had minimal presence on the website at that point. A 2005 website redesign placed The A. V. Club in a more prominent position, allowing its online identity to grow. Unlike its parent publication, The A. V. Club is not satirical; the publication's name is a reference to audiovisual clubs typical of American high schools. In 1993, five years after the founding of The Onion, Stephen Thompson, a student at the University of Wisconsin–Madison, launched an entertainment section of the newspaper. In 1996, both The Onion and The A. V. Club were debuted on the Internet; the A. V. Club was a sub-section of the main theonion.com domain name. The supplement was moved to its own domain name, theavclub.com, before the 2005 acquisition of the shorter avclub.com domain name.
The latter change coincided with a redesign that blog content. In 2006 the website shifted its content model again to add content on a daily, rather than weekly, basis; some contributors have become established as freelance editors. In December 2004, Stephen Thompson left his position as founding editor of The A. V. Club. According to Sean Mills, then-president of The Onion, the A. V. Club website first reached more than 1 million unique visitors in October 2007. In late 2009 the website was reported to have received more than 1.4 million unique visitors and 75,000 comments per month. At its peak, the print version of The A. V. Club was available in 17 different cities. Localized sections of the website were maintained, with reviews and news relevant to specific cities; the print version and localized websites were discontinued, in December 2013, print publication ceased production in the last three markets. On December 13, 2012, long-time writer and editor Keith Phipps, who oversaw the website after Stephen Thompson left, stepped down from his role as editor of The A.
V. Club, he said, "Onion, Inc. and I have come to a mutual parting of the ways."On April 2, 2013, long-time film editor and critic Scott Tobias stepped down as film editor of The A. V. Club, he said via Twitter. On April 26, 2013, long-time writers Nathan Rabin, Tasha Robinson, Genevieve Koski announced that they would be leaving the website to begin work on a new project with Scott Tobias and Keith Phipps. Koski said that she would continue to write freelance articles. Writer Noel Murray announced he would be joining their new project, but would continue to contribute to The A. V. Club in a reduced capacity. On May 30, 2013, it was announced that those six writers would be part of the senior staff of The Dissolve, a film website run by Pitchfork Media. In April and June 2014, senior staff writers Kyle Ryan, Sonia Saraiya, Emily VanDerWerff left the website for positions at Entertainment Weekly and Vox Media, respectively. In 2015, Ryan returned to Inc. for a position in development. Following his departure from The Dissolve earlier that month, Nathan Rabin returned to write freelance for the AV Club website in May 2015.
He renewed his regular column "My World of Flops". The Dissolve folded in July 2015. On February 16, 2017 The A. V. Club's editor-at-large, John Teti, posted an article on the website announcing the upcoming release of a television series, titled The A. V. Club and based on the website; the series, hosted by Teti, ran for one season. The series featured news and discussions about various popular culture topics and featured staff members from the website. In January 2016 Univision Communications acquired "a 40 percent, controlling stake" in Onion Inc. the parent company of The A. V. Club; that year, Univision purchased Gawker Media and reorganized several of Gawker's sites into the new Gizmodo Media Group, a division of Fusion Media Group. The site was subsequently migrated from Bulbs, an internal content management system developed by Onion Inc. to the Gawker-developed Kinja platform. It has deleted the comment audience reviews hosted on the previous site. In July of 2018, Univision announced. In April 2019, Gizmodo and The Onion were sold to private equity firm Great Hill Partners, which combined them into a new company named G/O Media.
In early 2020, it was announced that former People magazine and Entertainment Weekly editor Patrick Gomez had been named editor-in-chief and the site was opening a Los Angeles bureau. On December 9, 2010, the website ComicsComicsMag revealed that a capsule review for the book, Isolated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth, had been fabricated; the book had not yet been published nor completed by the authors. After the review was removed, editor Keith Phipps posted an apology on the website, stating that the reporter assigned the review could not locate a copy of the book and so fabricated it. Leonard Pierce, the author of the review, was terminated from his freelance role with the website; the Tenacity Of The Cockroach: Conversations With Entertainment's Most Enduring Outsiders is a collection of 68 interviews featured in previous issues.
