When viewing a merge commit it only shows the number of lines changed but no diff.

I know that it is possible with git show --first-parent. Is there a way to add an argument to magit-show-commit?

I'm aware that I can just diff from the commit view but I thought there may be a way to do it directly when viewing the commit.

Use the diff dwim command instead (d d); it does what you want it to do in this case too.
