You could also have had 52 playing cards in a deck. But weeks in a year is the one I was thinking of. Well done!
As for the solution to the other teaser. I already posted it, but got deleted when the forum crashed. Here it is again:
Interior decorator - as in the stripping of wallpaper.
Exotic dancer - needs no further explanation.
TV programme scheduler - the allocation of time slots to fill with TV programmes is known as stripping.
[The original question was: what word can be associated with these three occupations?]
