Posting your location will help. There is no limit to the number of receptacles on a general lighting circuit. You need one 15A circuit for every 600 sq ft of living space or, one 20A gen lighting circuit for every 800 sq ft.

Then you might need to run it all in conduit. What part of Illinois?
It also depends on what you intend to plug into the receptacles. Any place you might use a heater should have less devices on the circuit. The TV location would be a good idea to be on separate circuit although not required.

Not to be rude, but your posts suggest to me that you have little or no knowledge of electricity or wiring. If that is the case, please don't even attempt this project until you do some studying. There is an excellent little book called "Wiring Simplified" that will greatly help you. It's sold in most big box stores, and is in the Electrical section, not where the other books are. Costs something like $12.
